Speaker Series: Dr. Robert Epstein: A Carbon-Neutral Future: Strategies for a Stable Climate

A Carbon-Neutral Future: Strategies for a Stable Climate

Our best chance to minimize the effects of climate change is to be “carbon-neutral” by 2045. Since 2006, California has demonstrated how governments can encourage innovation and gradually reduce emissions without harming the economy. In collaboration with other sub-nations and nation, policies and innovations have been shared around the world. In the coming decade, additional strategies will be needed in order to both reduce emissions at a faster rate and start taking more carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.
