National Climate Seminar: Offshore Wind: New York's 9 GW Commitment
The 2030 date to achieve the Paris Climate Accords carbon target is forcing all of us to rethink "Business As Usual”. New York's recent commitment to 9GW of OffShore Wind is a game changer for this technology option in the US. Join NYSERDA's Adrienne Downey for an inside look at how this new industry will grow in the northeast over the next few years.
This webinar is part of a year-long project: Solve Climate By 2030 sponsored by The Bard Center for Environmental Policy The project takes as its starting point recent IPCC report that we have only ten years to forestall catastrophic climate change. Tthe project culminates on April 7, 2020 in a national Power Dialog: 52 simultaneous, university hosted webinars, one in every state, DC and Puerto Rico. In these webinars, local climate solutions experts will suggest three ambitious but feasible state, urban, utility or business initiatives that need to occur in Tennessee and Idaho, Missouri and New Jersey, Florida and Minnesota, if we aim to forestall catastrophic climate change. Following these state webinars, classes and other groups tuning in will have 60 minutes for “solutions sprints” designed to identify civic action opportunities for participants.
