[Yale Center for Business and the Environment] Searching for real US progress on climate? Look to the States.
Friday, Feb 28 2020 at 3:00 - 5:30 pm EST
1425 K Street NW
Suite 200 (2nd floor)
From CBEY Robert J. Klee, former Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, and now a lecturer at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies (FES) and Yale Law School will present a talk entitled Searching for real US progress on climate? Look to the States. Klee’s talk will explore how leading states, cities, companies, and institutions (like universities and faith-based organizations) have developed policy tools and innovative programs to combat global warming and deeply decarbonize our economy. Klee argues that these innovative techniques, developed from the laboratory of the states, must be scaled up and adopted quickly and widely if we hope to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. This roadmap, if adopted nationally with sufficient speed and ambition, could form the basis for the deep decarbonization of the U.S. economy. How can we implement this roadmap and enable these initiatives to take root across the country? We invite you to discuss this question at this very special event. When: Friday, February 28th, 2020, 3:00 PM — 5:30 PM Where: 1425 K Street NW Suite 200 (2nd floor) Washington, D.C., DC
