Climate Change/global warming continues to be a ‘hot topic’ among economists, politicians, citizens, and environmentalists. On February 25th, Join Ryan Jones & Ben Haley of the USDDPP Team(The U.S. Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project) for the third Sherb Talk of February, “Exploring Pathways to Deep Decarbonization in the U.S,” or, in translation, what are the most realistic paths leading to a US economy that produces little to no CO2.
The U.S. Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (USDDPP) investigates the concrete requirements of a low-carbon transition in the United States – technology pathways, changes in physical infrastructure, and what policies are actually needed to drive an energy system transformation.
The USDDPP is a member of the Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (DDPP), a collaboration of research teams from sixteen high-emitting countries, who are developing national decarbonization strategies to limit global warming to 2°C or less. The DDPP emphasizes transparent analysis and practical problem-solving.
Ben Haley is head of the USDDPP team and they are co-founders of Evolved Energy Research. (http://usddpp.org/)
