The main panel discussion will take place at 11 a.m. at the Lyric. Moderated by Saul Halfon of the Department of Science and Technology in Society at Virginia Tech, the panel will include the following experts: Brenda Ekwurzel of the Union of Concerned Scientists; Bill Chameidis of Environmental Defense and Georgia Institute of Technology; Karen Litfin, professor of political science at the University of Washington; Eugene Linden, writer on science and environment; and Karen Warren, professor of philosophy at Macalester College.

A series of background and follow-up sessions, at the Graduate Life Center at Donaldson Brown, beginning at 8 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. (respectively), will fill in with up-to-date materials and allow for audience participation. Session topics include the science background on climate change, ecological impact, the politics of oil, sustainable energy, and representations in the popular culture, among other topics.

In conjunction with the Choices and Challenges Forum, there will be a performance piece on climate change, titled The Silencer, by Rhiannon Tise. The piece will be performed Nov. 1-3 at Newman House at 8 p.m.
