Featuring a presentation by Joint Program Deputy Director Sergey Paltsev on scaling up low-carbon energy. The energy sector is facing unprecedented challenges, with the global Covid-19 pandemic complicating an already challenging transition toward a low-carbon future. One of the key elements in addressing both the current pandemic and climate change is with forward-looking collaborations in technology development and innovation—which have long been a hallmark of MIT’s approach to problem solving.

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.
