MIT Climate Symposium: Progress in Climate Science

October 02, 2019,
1:00pm - 4:00pm

Greenhouse gas emissions, global warming, climate impacts, and mitigation scenarios.

Speakers include Joint Program Co-Director John Reilly and faculty affiliates.

This symposium will consider what is known about the relationship between greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere and global warming, extreme weather events, and other climate impacts. We will also discuss remaining uncertainties and the prospects for reducing them. Finally, we will explore the projected physical effects of increasing greenhouse gas emissions under alternative mitigation scenarios.
