Copenhagen was a letdown, and it would have been a complete disaster without President Obama’s last-minute efforts. Where do we go from here? How do we get the climate change effort back on track?
We’ll be holding a conference at Berkeley on January 28 to explore those issues. “Beyond Copenhagen: Forging a Global Response to Climate Change,“ will feature a spectrum of Berkeley experts, nearly all of whom were at Copenhagen:
Panel 1: The International Dynamic
What are the major forces shaping the negotiations? What are possible avenues for the next round of negotiations?
Moderator: Laurel Fletcher (Law); Rob Collier (Goldman School); Blas Perez Henriquez (Goldman School); John Zysman (political science)
Panel 2: New Directions in Global Climate Policy
Where should global climate policy be going? How do we get there?
Moderator: Paul Wright (CITRIS); Michael Hanemann (ARE); Dan Kammen (ERG, Goldman, Engineering); David Roland-Holst (ARE)
