As part of their monthly Green Infrastructure, Climate, and Cities Seminar Series, the Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast’s (CCRUN), a NOAA CAP/RISA team, February webinar is “Mitigation and Adaptation Emissions Embedded in the Broader Climate Transition.”
Corey Lesk, a climate impacts scientist and postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Geography and the Neukom Institute at Dartmouth College, is invited to speak on the broader climate transition and its involvement with massive deployment of renewable energy and adaptations like enhanced space cooling and coastal protection and retreat. These interventions require energy and materials, which will produce CO2 emissions. But the magnitude of these emissions remains unconstrained, opening the potential for under-accounting of future emissions and conflicts or synergies between mitigation and adaptation goals. Corey will show that these embedded transition emissions are likely considerable, reaching 185GtCO2 (about 5 years of current emissions) under a pathway consistent with current policies.
The webinar will take place on March 1, 2023 at 4:00 PM EST.
