The United States rejoined the Paris Climate Accord on February 19. Now, the hard part begins. Setting ambitious goals is an important first step, but we now need to transform broad goals into specific targets and find a mix of technologies, policies, incentives, regulations, and philosophies that enable us to meet those targets. Critical pieces of the puzzle include the status of the technologies for clean energy production and utilization and the options for carbon removal, especially by nature.
This webinar organized by the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment will bring together science and technology experts with experience in diverse decarbonization options for a discussion on U.S. pathways towards zero net greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). The conversation will focus not only on the technology but also on assuring that the transition puts a priority on equity and justice.
