Images gathered by NASA show an increase in foliage in China and India. The greening effect is mainly due to ambitious tree-planting in China and intensive farming in both countries. But don’t celebrate just yet. Researchers warn while extra vegetation may help slow climate change, this will be offset by rising temperatures. To discuss: Bob Ward is the Policy Director at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change. Dr. Sweta Chakraborty is a risk and behavioral scientist. David Livingston is the Deputy Director for climate and advanced energy at the Atlantic Council. Myron Ebell is the Director of the Center for Energy and Environment with the Competitive Enterprise Institute.
With the effects of climate change already upon us, the need to cut global greenhouse gas emissions is nothing less than urgent. It’s a daunting challenge, but the technologies and strategies to meet it exist today. A small set of energy policies, designed and implemented well, can put us on the path to a low carbon future. Energy systems are large and complex, so energy policy must be focused and cost-effective. One-size-fits-all approaches simply won’t get the job done. Policymakers need a clear, comprehensive resource that outlines the energy policies that will have the biggest impact on our climate future, and describes how to design these policies well.
Designing Climate Solutions: A Policy Guide for Low-Carbon Energy is the first such guide, bringing together the latest research and analysis around low carbon energy solutions. Written by Hal Harvey, CEO of the policy firm Energy Innovation, with Robbie Orvis and Jeffrey Rissman of Energy Innovation, Designing Climate Solutions is an accessible resource on lowering carbon emissions for policymakers, activists, philanthropists, and others in the climate and energy community. In Part I, the authors deliver a roadmap for understanding which countries, sectors, and sources produce the greatest amount of greenhouse gas emissions, and give readers the tools to select and design efficient policies for each of these sectors. In Part II, they break down each type of policy, from renewable portfolio standards to carbon pricing, offering key design principles and case studies where each policy has been implemented successfully.
We don’t need to wait for new technologies or strategies to create a low carbon future—and we can’t afford to. Designing Climate Solutions gives professionals the tools they need to select, design, and implement the policies that can put us on the path to a livable climate future.
Research shows that a socially-emotionally supportive setting is the solution to increasing student achievement.
