Prospects for Climate Solutions

Past Event

February 6, 2019

6:00 pm - 7:15 pm

As the 116th Congress convenes, prospects for effective and enduring climate policy are profoundly uncertain. Recent national and international assessments emphasize that climate science is well understood, that human activities are driving climate change, and that serious impacts are occurring and will worsen. Our political leaders are bitterly divided over whether, when, and how to respond to climate change. Some advocate efforts to foster bipartisan consensus while others argue for solutions such as the Green New Deal that are favored only, or chiefly, by particular political groupings. Join the Center on Global Energy Policy as we assess prospects for bipartisan solutions on climate in this uncertain environment with a discussion led by CGEP Distinguished Visiting Fellow Carlos Curbelo, former U.S. representative for Florida’s 26th congressional district. Following Congressman Curbelo’s remarks, he will join Kristina Costa, Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, Alex Flint, Executive Director of Alliance for Market Solutions, and Rhiana Gunn-Wright, Policy Director for the Green New Deal project at New Consensus, for a panel discussion moderated by Jonathan Elkind, CGEP Fellow and Senior Research Scholar. — Guests unable to attend in person can view a livestream of the event at energypolicy.columbia.edu/livestream. This event is open to press. Please direct media inquiries to Artealia Gilliard ([email protected]). A podcast of this event will be available a week after the date of the event through iTunes and our website. For more information contact: [email protected].
