Date and time: Wed, June 1, 2022 @ 11 AM - 2 PM PT (2 PM – 5 PM ET)
Join a science webinar on how the transitioning of the world’s energy system from fossil fuel combustion to net-zero emissions of carbon dioxide is critical to mitigating climate change, protecting human health, and equitably sustaining the U.S. economy.
The 2021 National Academies report Accelerating Decarbonization of the United States Energy System identified key technological and socio-economic goals that must be achieved to put the United States on the path to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. This webinar will focus on key findings of the report related to equity and inclusion in the U.S. energy system.
Panelists also will explore the role of the social and behavioral sciences in helping policymakers, businesses, communities, and the public better understand and respond to what a net-zero transition would mean for the United States.
