Description

Rick Schuhmann talks about the politics of water and climate change. Climate change is the one thing that George Bush and Al Gore agree on. Climate change can present a national security threat to a country. Climate change can act as a threat multiplier.

Rick Schuhmann has been a faculty member at Penn State University since 1998 and is currently the Walter L. Robb Director of Engineering Leadership Development in the College of Engineering. Dr. Schuhmann holds faculty positions in Engineering Design, Science-Technology-and-Society (STS), and is a member of the graduate faculty in Civil and Environmental Engineering.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
