Climate Change: Science, Technology, Policy, and Politics

Dr. Sandeep Agarwal

11 a.m., January 26, 2020

Global greenhouse gas emissions are continuing to increase despite clear indications that the Earth may warm well beyond 2 deg C. In order to avoid extreme climate consequences, the present energy, industrial, and food production systems need to be decarbonized. Rapid growth of solar and wind, as well as falling prices of electric vehicles, shows that a world without fossil fuels is possible. This talk will focus on policies and technologies needed to achieve a net zero emissions world by 2050.

Our speaker, Dr. Sandeep Agarwal, works as a CTO of a solar startup. He lives in the Bay Area with his wife and two children. He moved to the US from India around two decades back.
