Videos, Materials Available From PEC Deep Decarbonization Conference In Pittsburgh

Videos of presentations and other materials are now available from the Deep Decarbonization Conference held by the PA Environmental Council in March.
Deep decarbonization focuses on cutting greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent or greater by mid-century, which is in line with what the world’s top scientists recommend.  The conference explored why such a target is important and how Pennsylvania might get there in a way that balances environmental, economic, and equity impacts.
Featured speakers include-- Dr. Julio Friedmann, a former DOE official currently with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory; Patrick McDonnell, Acting Secretary of the PA Department of Environmental Protection; Jessica Lovering of the Breakthrough Institute, an energy and environment think tank; Dr. Matthew McKinzie of the Natural Resources Defense Council; retired U.S. Navy Rear Admiral David Titley, Ph.D., currently with the Penn State Department of Meteorology and Atmospheric Science; and Dr. Granger Morgan of Carnegie Mellon University and the NSF Center for Climate and Energy Decision Making.
The conference was supported by the Roy A. Hunt Foundation, the Sustainable Energy Fund, the West Penn Power Sustainable Energy Fund, the Metropolitan Edison Sustainable Energy Fund, and the Penelec Sustainable Energy Fund, as well as a host of corporate and nonprofit sponsors.
