As the U.S. rejoins other leading nations in the race to mitigate climate change, the debate is no longer about whether it can be, but about whether we can limit its harms. What will it take to get to Net Zero Emissions by 2050? Fears about a perceived trade-off between climate mitigation and economic development continue, but this webinar series seeks to move beyond that conceptualization and understand how climate change can be dramatically slowed, and the economy “decarbonized,” without economic loss.
What does this reshaping of the world economy mean for climate-polluting nation-states like the U.S., China, India, and those in Europe? For economic sectors, like energy, transportation, and agriculture? What macro-level changes are necessary, and how might these affect the day-to-day lives of citizens and consumers? Join the Center for Environmental Policy this spring as we explore these issues with some of the world’s leading experts.
