Many researchers and scientists have projected that we will double our carbon emissions worldwide by 2050. The negative effects this will have on our environment have raised significant concerns in the public and private sector in response to carbon emissions and climate change, coupled with fossil fuels and renewable energy technologies such as wind and solar. These following points “fuel” the debate:
- Not all renewable energy sources (e.g. wind vs. biomass) displace the same fossil fuels in regards to CO2 emissions.
- Not all fossil fuels produce the same level of pollution (coal power plants produce more CO2 than natural gas.)
Join SUNY ESF and its partners on Thursday, November 4th for presentations and debate about carbon cycling and renewable technologies from a production, policy and viability perspective. Participants are also invited to come the prior evening, November 3rd, for panel discussions at the SU Whitman School of Management on renewable technologies.
$25.00 registration fee includes both days and breakfast and lunch on Thursday.
The program is sponsored by The Sustainable Enterprise Project (SEP), a collaborative group led by SUNY-ESF, the Whitman School of Management (SU), and the Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Innovations. The SURE program is supported, in part, by a NYS Department of Labor grant in partnership with CNY Works.
Registration is now open at www.esf.edu/outreach/sure/2010/
