Climate Conversations: Pathways to Action – Methane
February 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm
Methane accounts for around 20% of global greenhouse gas emissions, behind only carbon dioxide. As methane is both more potent and shorter-lived than carbon dioxide, near-term efforts to reduce emissions of methane could slow the increase in global temperature in the next few decades. Rebecca Leber (Vox) will moderate a conversation between Fiji George (Cheniere Energy) and Steven Hamburg (Environmental Defense Fund) about anthropogenic sources of methane, the role of methane in climate change, and potential actions to reduce methane emissions in the U.S. by the private sector, public sector, and individuals.
The conversation will be webcast on Wednesday, February 22, 2023 from 3-4:15pm ET. Closed captioning will be provided. The conversation will include questions from the audience and will be recorded and available to view on the page after the event.
Climate Conversations: Pathways to Action is a monthly webinar series from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine that aims to convene high-level, cross-cutting, nonpartisan conversations about issues relevant to policy action on climate change.
