The Institution for Social and Policy Studies presents:
Nat Keohane, the Environmental Defense Fund: “Turning the Corner to Climate Safety: The Economics – and Politics – of Solving the Climate Crisis.”
Climate change is one of the defining challenges of our world today. With temperatures and sea levels rising, and extreme weather events becoming increasingly frequent, we are already getting a glimpse of the possible future – and yet global emissions of greenhouse gases continue on their seemingly inexorable rise. What impacts are we likely to see in the decades ahead from a changing climate? What can we do to turn the corner on rising emissions and put the planet on a path toward climate safety? Join Nathaniel Keohane, a former Yale professor and Obama Administration official and now Senior VP and head of climate at Environmental Defense Fund, for a discussion of the threats facing all of us – and why there’s still reason to be optimistic despite the magnitude of the challenge.
