To combat global warming, we'll need to change the rules that underlay the global economy, transform global energy and allot carbon emissions much more fairly across the globe, said Timothy Wirth, president of the U.N. Foundation and Better World Fund. He delivered the 2008 Jill and Ken Iscol Distinguished Environmental Lecture in Call Auditorium, April 17.

Wirth has a long history of environmental policy making. A former U.S. senator from Colorado, Wirth was undersecretary of state for global affairs during the Clinton administration, worked with Vice President Al Gore on global environmental and population issues and supported the Kyoto Protocol.
