The GW Environmental Resource Policy Program and the GW Sustainability Collaborative are proud to host Karl Hausker, Ph.D., Senior Fellow, Climate Program, World Resources Institute, and leader of the analytic and writing team for the latest study by the Risky Business Project: From Risk to Return: Investing in a Clean Energy Economy.
Co-Chairs Michael Bloomberg, Henry Paulson, Jr., and Thomas Steyer tasked the World Resources Institute with this independent assessment of technically and economically feasible pathways that the U.S. could follow to achieve an 80% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2050. Dr. Hausker will present the results of the study and draw some comparisons to the US Mid Century Strategy report submitted to the UNFCCC. He has worked for 30 years in the fields of climate change, energy, and environment in a career that has spanned legislative and executive branches, research institutions, NGOs, and consulting.
