In the Booktv interview he schools Arthur Brooks on terminology and methods to counter the "ClimateGate" effect and how "Climate Change" (was Global Warming") is a fundemental building block of future Globalization planning (global taxation/cap and trade) (tell Brooks not to use the term "SCANDAL" )

Strobe Talbott to head Center for Study of Globalization
November 17, 2000
Strobe Talbott, the deputy secretary of state and a key architect of U.S. foreign policy for the past eight years, will direct the new Yale Center for the Study of Globalization.
The University will also launch an innovative fellowship program for emerging leaders of other countries and establish the first of three new interdisciplinary professorships in international studies.
The announcements underscore the determination of Yale, which celebrates its 300th birthday in 2001, to become a thoroughly global institution of higher education as it enters its fourth century. (See related story.)
Talbott, a 1968 graduate of Yale College and a former trustee of the University, will begin work in July 2001 as director of the new center and professor in the field of international relations.
"Strobe Talbott's contributions to international relations have spanned the worlds of scholarship, journalism and diplomacy," President Richard C. Levin said. "He is superbly qualified to direct an effort that will draw on Yale's distinguished faculty to understand globalization, promote on-line dialogue about its implications, and facilitate the resolution of global and regional conflicts."
Talbott became deputy secretary of state in early 1994 after serving for a year as ambassador-at-large and special adviser to the secretary of state on the new independent states. He entered public service after 21 years as an award-winning journalist for Time magazine, where he was editor-at-large, foreign affairs columnist, Washington bureau chief, State Department correspondent and White House correspondent.
A Rhodes scholar, Talbott is the translator and editor of Nikita Khrushchev's memoirs and the author of six books on diplomacy and U.S.-Soviet relations. Since becoming deputy secretary, he has written articles for The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Economist, The Financial Times, Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, The New York Review of Books, The Wall Street Journal, World Policy Journal and Slate.
Talbott has served as a director of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a trustee of the Trilateral Commission and a member of the Aspen Strategy Group.
"In moving from government to Yale, I'm coming home to a community that has always upheld the highest intellectual standards while actively engaging in the affairs of the world," said Talbott. "That tradition makes Yale a natural leader in the quest to understand, explain and shape the forces that are changing our lives and defining our era. The mission of the center is to help the University meet that challenge."
The Center for the Study of Globalization and the fellowship program for emerging global leaders will be housed in the Davies Mansion, a recently restored Victorian mansion of nearly 20,000 square feet that sits on a hilltop at the north end of the Yale campus.
Didn't both Clinton and Talbott go to the USSR as Rhodes Scholars ?

Was it Strobe Talbott that shared a room with Clinton at Oxford ?
Global Governance - To Strobe Talbott, it's inevitable. To John Bolton, it's surrender
The Story of Ancient Empires, Modern States, And the Quest for a Global Nation By Strobe Talbott
John Bolton, most recently President Bush's ambassador to the United Nations, and Strobe Talbott, President Clinton's deputy secretary of state and now president of the Brookings Institution, have some things in common. Both attended Yale in the troubled 1960s: Talbott as a classmate of George W. Bush, Bolton two years later. Both are baby boomers who did not serve in the Vietnam War: Talbott went to England as a Rhodes scholar, while Bolton made a "cold calculation that I wasn't going to waste time on a futile struggle."
Strobe Talbott has been tracking — and making — international news for decades.
He was Time magazine’s principal correspondent on Soviet-American relations through the 1980s. Then he became deputy secretary of state for his college buddy and fellow Rhodes Scholar, Bill Clinton, from 1994-2001.
Talbott will speak to the UNLV Foundation board about the partnership between Brookings and UNLV and about “Fast Forward,” his new book on climate change, at 9 a.m. today in the Greenspun Hall Auditorium on the UNLV campus. The meeting is open to the public.
After earning degrees in Russian studies from Yale and Oxford, Talbott headed to Time, where he became a prolific author and respected foreign affairs expert. He left journalism for government when longtime friend, former housemate and Rhodes classmate Bill Clinton came calling. He served first as ambassador at large and special adviser on the emerging independent states of the former Soviet Union, then as deputy secretary of state under Madeleine Albright.
THE RUSSIA HAND, by STROBE TALBOTT
"A Memoir of Presidential Diplomacy" is the subtitle of The Russia Hand, but it is Strobe Talbott and not Bill Clinton, his fellow Rhodes Scholar and Oxford housemate, who tells this story. It is Talbott the long-time correspondent and columnist for Time magazine who has written it fast and well and delivered it first.
