YCEI’s 5th Annual Conference Closing Keynote. Rajendra Pachauri
YCEI’s 5th Annual Conference honored founding director IPCC Chairman Dr. Rajendra Pachauri. Dr. Pachauri reviewed his tenure at the helm of the YCEI in a presentation that concluded the conference. Yale President Peter Salovey made a surprise appearance, thanking Dr. Pachauri for his continuing service to the YCEI, presenting him with a hockey stick from Yale’s 2014 NCAA championship team, signed by the last two Yale presidents and other founders of the YCEI. The sharply angled profile of a hockey stick has become emblematic of the rapid rise of global surface temperatures which Dr. Pachauri’s career has been dedicated to address.
