In Paris, world leaders signed an unprecedented climate agreement to limit temperature rise to “well below” 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) over pre-industrial levels by 2100. On January 22, Duke faculty and students who attended the climate change conference will reflect on the significance of the new climate accord, what we can expect from it, and how the Duke community was involved in the conversation.

Duke faculty and students are invited to join us for a moderated panel discussion focused on how the Paris Agreement sets the stage for action moving forward. The agenda will be:

Introductory Remarks: Jonathan Wiener, Professor of Law, Duke Law School

Moderator: Tim Profeta, Director, Nicholas Institute 

Panelists:

  •          Brian Murray, Director, Environmental Economics Program, Nicholas Institute
  •          Drew Shindell, Professor of Climate Sciences, Nicholas School of the Environment
  •          Emily Pechar, Ph.D. Student, University Program in Environmental Policy

Concluding Remarks: Billy Pizer, Professor, Sanford School of Public Policy, and Faculty Fellow, Nicholas Institute 

Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to attend.

The event is co-sponsored by the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, the Duke University Energy Initiative, and the Duke Office of Global Affairs.
