Now What? The Near Future of New York Climate Policy

Date: December 14, 2016

Time: 9:00 - 10:30 AM

Host: Building Energy Exchange

Type: Lecture/Presentation


Join BEEx for a conversation on the future of energy and environmental issues after the election. Many stakeholders focused on climate change and environmental issues have been preparing for a very different political climate than the one we will find in January. What do we know about this future, and how will it impact our region, our State, our City?


We are honored to be joined by Marcia Bystryn, President of the New York League of Conservation Voters, and Michael B. Gerrard, Director of the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia University. We will discuss what they know about this new political paradigm, how we can expect things to change, and where there may be cause for hope in our fight against climate change.
