Cli­mate Week NYC Vir­tual Event | Envi­ron­men­tal Jus­tice: Cli­mate, Health, and Energy

Upcom­ing Sep­tem­ber 24, 2020 9:00 AM — 10:30 AM EDT

DESCRIPTION: Please reg­is­ter using the “Event Web­site” link to the right.Climate change is already impact­ing the health of peo­ple around the world. At the heart of the challenge—and its solution—is the energy sys­tem, which cur­rently pro­duces not only the major­ity of human-​​produced green­house gas emis­sions but also the vast major­ity of key air pol­lu­tants that harm the health of com­mu­ni­ties around the world. While these health impacts are felt by every­one, the bur­den is not evenly shared, with poor and mar­gin­al­ized com­mu­ni­ties often expe­ri­enc­ing a dis­pro­por­tion­ate share of these ill effects.The Cen­ter on Global Energy Pol­icy at Colum­bia SIPA will host a dis­cus­sion on under­stand­ing the impacts of cli­mate change and air pol­lu­tion on our health as well as how the energy tran­si­tion can help to pro­tect and improve human health mov­ing forward.
