Tom Zeller, Jr., a veteran reporter and editor for The New York Times, will address the topic of climate decay and how to reverse it Thursday, Feb. 25 in Utah Valley University’s Ragan Theater. Zeller, who previously worked with the National Geographic, currently covers alternative energy and green business for the leading national daily and his remarks will reflect the depth of his knowledge on the subject he has spent years covering.
The event is sponsored by the UVU Student Association (UVUSA) and is intended to further bring attention and understanding to the subject of environmental stewardship, which both the University and the student association have striven to make a priority.
“UVUSA has worked tirelessly this year to promote recycling on campus and other forms of planetary stewardship,” said Billy Swadley, UVU student senator for the College of Humanities & Social Sciences and one of the event organizers. “Tom Zeller’s commentary will be very harmonious with the efforts of student government and UVU at large. He brings a level of knowledge that will greatly benefit all in attendance.”
Zeller’s presentation will begin at 1:30 p.m. and is open to students, faculty, staff and community members. This event is sponsored by UVUSA, The New York Times, the UVU Center for the Study of Ethics and the International Center.
