New York Tackles Climate Change: Promoting Renewable Energy and Capping Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Tuesday, Nov 15, 2005

Date: Tuesday, November 15, 2005 6PM
Location: New York Academy of Sciences, 2 East 63rd Street
RSVP: NYAS website

Sponsored by the Environmental Sciences Section of the NYAS and the Sallan Foundation.

Panelists: Katherine Kennedy, Natural Resources Defense Council; and Franz Litz, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation

Moderator: Stephen A. Hammer, Center for Energy, Marine Transportation and Public Policy at Columbia University

On November 15, 2005, a panel sponsored by the Academy's Environmental Sciences Section and the Sallan Foundation reported on and explored a matter that in recent years has graduated from being interesting to being serious to being urgent: how New York State can reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) that contribute to climate change.

The lion's share of those emissions is the CO2 produced when fossil fuels are burned, and on this point mounting concerns about climate change converge with mounting concerns about global energy dependence on fossil fuels. Quite apart from environmental and health concerns — fossil fuel emissions other than CO2 cause harm, too — a shift from carbon-based fuels to more diversified sources of energy would ensure greater reliability of supply and dampen volatile price swings.

The Academy preBriefing for the 15 November panel with the full program, speakers' abstracts, bios and bibliographies, plus conference goals and background information is currently available on the New York Academy of Sciences web site at the following url: http://www.nyas.org/sallan.

Climate Mobilization Act Series: Unlocking Tenant Efficiency
9 Jul
As office buildings across NYC grapple with the implications of Local Law 97, improving the energy efficiency of major office tenants has become a critical issue. While anecdotal data gathered during the COVID-19 pandemic suggests that the near complete absence of occupants has had a surprisingly small impact on total building energy use, still, there are myriad ways in which tenants can dramatically improve their energy consumption. Learn how to ahead of the energy demand curve now!
