ASHRAE May Chapter Meeting featuring a presentation on 90 by 50: A Path to Deep CO2 Reductions in NYC.
Climate science tells us we must reduce carbon pollution to ensure a stable and livable environment. While the goal is clear, the path forward is incredibly murky. In “90 by 50: NYC Can Reduce Its Carbon Footprint 90% By 2050”, Urban Green Council lays out a possible path to a future in which New York City’s greenhouse gas emissions grow smaller at a rate consistent with long-term climate stability. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from the lead researcher behind the report, Richard Leigh, Urban Green Council’s Director of Research, on the means and methods necessary to reach a dramatic 90 percent reduction in carbon emissions by 2050.
