FALL 2019 EARTH TALKS SERIES: THE DYNAMICS OF DEEP DECARBONIZATION

Mondays at 4:00 PM in 112 Walker Building

Achieving truly deep decarbonization is a uniquely difficult problem requiring fundamental changes in multiple interconnected systems (energy, agriculture, industry). Decisions made with the intent of avoiding the most severe climate change climatic impacts happen in the face of deep and dynamic uncertainties. Deep decarbonization decisions may also create multiple winners and losers and is thus a problem of managing social change in addition to technology transition. This Earth Talks series will invite prominent researchers to give talks on energy systems transition, negative carbon emissions, terrestrial sequestration, decision-making under uncertainty, and public policy relevant to deep decarbonization.

Organizing Committee Members:  Seth Blumsack and Klaus Keller
