Lecture: New Cities for the New Climate

Dr. John Byrne
6:00 to 7:30pm, March 20th
2 W. 13th Street, Orientation“Bark” Room, Sheila C. Johnson Design Center

Climate change has proven to be a conundrum we are failing to address at the global and national level. The two major solutions that emerge- nuclear energy and large scale renewable energy suggest a continued path of CO2 dependency. In this talk Dr. John Byrne will discuss the political economy causes and implications of these technologically driven solutions and propose a third way, a commons approach. The importance of community based action and the role of cities and metropolitan areas are discussed as key to a successful climate change strategy.
