Ninth Annual Climate Change Debate: The Everett-Moomaw Showdown

Feburary 8, 2012 marked the ninth year of climate change debates between Professor William Moomaw, CIERP Director, and Bruce Everett, adjunct associate professor of international business. The debate lasted a rousing ninety minutes during which the two discussed some of today’s most important energy issues. The debate was broken in to four rounds: opening remarks, “20 Years after Rio,” “Unconventional Energy Sources: Problems and Perspectives,” and a Q&A with students.

In a blog post recapping the event, Fletcher student Elia Boggia, F13, notes:

“As the two debaters initially made their way to the stage – wearing boxing gloves and capes – and throughout the duration of the debate, the auditorium was buzzing with vivacity, creating an atmosphere akin to an orderly sports arena. Students in the audience cheered, held signs expressing their views on energy issues and live tweeted from the event using the hash tags #campmoomaw and #campeverett.” (Ella Boggia)

Boggia, was joined by Mohannad Al-Suwaidan, F12, and Kartikeya Singh, Ph.D anticipated in 2015, in live-tweeting the event.
