Mitigating Climate Change by Transitioning to a Renewable Resource-Based Economy

2-26-2018 at 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

A lecture by:

Dr. Steven Cohen
Executive Director of The Earth Institute at Columbia University

Climate change is the first widely recognized global crisis of environmental sustainability. Its solution requires the implementation of a transition from a fossil-fuel based energy economy to one built on renewable resources. This transition requires the development and diffusion of new technologies. The technological challenges of this transition will require significant political, organizational and financial resources and capacities. This talk will discuss the challenges of this transition and outline a path for meeting these challenges by the middle of the 21st century.

This lecture is free and open to the public but space is limited.
