“Cooperating for the Climate” Book Talk with Joanna Lewis

February 28 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm

China is the world’s largest producer of both CO2 emissions and green technology, so that nation is playing an outsized role in deploying green energy technologies to address the climate crisis. What is the current state of international climate cooperation with China and what does history teach us?

Joanna Lewis will present the results from her new book, “Cooperating for the Climate,” which examines motivations, science, and politics behind international clean energy technology collaboration with China. Her talk will be followed by a discussion with Prof. Alex Wang, Faculty Co-Director of the Emmett Institute.

Joanna I. Lewis is Provost’s Distinguished Associate Professor of Energy and Environment and Director of the Science, Technology and International Affairs Program at Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service. She is the author of the award-winning book “Green Innovation in China” and was a lead author of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Fifth Assessment Report.
