Presented by: Margot Hurlbert, JSGS Professor

Climate change is what policy scientists call a ‘wicked problem’ - complex, as it defies complete definition, a final solution is elusive, and any resolution generates further issues. In this presentation, Margot Hurlbert will talk about innovation policy research strategies and methods that will address the increasingly critical problem of the gap between projected CO2 emissions, and necessary mitigation pathways. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change models show that to meet commitments made in Paris to limit global temperatures to less than 2°C, we need to not only reduce CO2 emissions, but remove it from the atmosphere. This removal will require negative emission technologies and significant transformational change of our energy and transportation infrastructure.
