Duquesne Law Students Hosting Debate on Global Climate Change

The Federalist Society and the Environmental Law Society at Duquesne University School of Law are hosting Climategate Debate: The Other Side of Global Climate Change.

The pros and cons of climate change will be debated by feature participants Dr. Steven F. Hayward, the Thomas Smith Distinguished Fellow at the John M. Ashbrook Center at Ashland University, and Dr. John F. Stolz, professor of microbiology at Duquesne University's Bayer School of Natural and Environmental Sciences.

Hayward, who also holds the Ronald Reagan Professor of Public Policy at Ashland, directs the Ashbrook Center's new program in political economy. For the last decade, he was the F.K. Weyerhaeuser Fellow in Law and Economics at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C., and a senior fellow at the Pacific Research Institute in San Francisco. Hayward also writes for PowerLineBlog.com.

Stolz is director of Duquesne University's Center for Environmental Research and Education. His research focuses on the physiology and biochemistry of bacteria that transform metals and metalloids as well as microbial community structure. Stolz is also interested in the fundamental questions in microbial ecology and the application of unique microbial species for bioremediation.
