Every spring and fall, Penn Arts and Sciences faculty take a minute out by the Ben Franklin statue in front of College Hall to share their perspectives on topics ranging from human history and the knowable universe to fractions and fly-fishing.
1.5* Minute Climate Lectures
In the fall of 2019, professors and students from across the University united in a series of 1.5* Minute Climate Lectures to sound the alarm about the climate emergency, to call for large-scale climate action, and to share a vision of constructive and comprehensive response. The maximum amount the average temperature can rise in order to avoid the worst consequences of global warming is 1.5°C. We’re already past 1°C.
