Former Vice President Al Gore, chairman of The Climate Reality Project, will share his thoughts on addressing climate change within our democracy and take questions from students at Stanford University on Tuesday, April 23, when he gives a lecture in honor of Stephen H. Schneider, the Stanford professor and world-renowned climate scientist who died in 2010.

“Al Gore worked closely with Steve to sound the alarm about climate change, long before the average person understood there was a problem,” said Terry Root, a senior fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, which is sponsoring the first annual Stephen H. Schneider Memorial Lecture along with the Stanford Speakers Bureau and two student groups on campus: Students in Government and Students for a Sustainable Stanford. Root frequently collaborated with her late husband Steve Schneider on understanding environmental consequences of climate change. 

The program, which is open to the public, will begin at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:15 p.m.) in Memorial Auditorium on the Stanford campus. Tickets are free, but seating is limited. Stanford students and postdoctoral fellows need only show their Stanford identification card to be admitted. All others should contact the Stanford Ticket Office on the second floor of Tresidder Union or by calling 650.725.2787.
