"Accelerating the Climate Revolution" The 18th Annual Where on Earth Are We Going? Symposium of the Robert F. Schumann Institute of the College of the Environment
Five years ago, Jacob Scherr '70 an international environmental attorney, lit up the Eiffel Tower to mark the start of the “Climate Revolution” with the signing of the historic Paris Climate Agreement. Since then, the signs of a changing climate have become more evident and calls for action particularly from young people have grown louder in spite of the Trump Administration’s determination to withdraw the US from its international leadership on this existential threat. In this WESeminar, Jacob shared his decades-long first-hand perspective of where we are today in the US and worldwide in dealing with the climate crisis. Amy Gomberg Kurt '04 managing regional government affairs for EDP Renewables (the 4th largest owner and operator of wind farms in North America, and around the world), spoke about her on-the-ground work on the needed rapid transition away from fossil fuels responsible for much of the greenhouse gas emissions. Professor Barry Chernoff introduced the panelists and moderated the Q&A. This event was recorded on: 10/16/20
