Climate Conversations: Future of Fossil Fuels

Thu, 16 Nov 2023 20:00:00 GMT

Join us for a discussion about the future of fossil fuels in a net-zero United States.

About this Event

As the United States decarbonizes its economy and strives for net-zero greenhouse gas emissions, production and consumption of fossil fuels will need to decline substantially. Reducing fossil fuel usage will bring significant benefits, like lower emissions and better ambient air quality, but poses challenges for communities that are economically dependent on extraction and production. Marcius Extavour (TIME CO2) will moderate a conversation with Julia Haggerty (Montana State University) and Daniel Raimi (Resources for the Future) about the future of fossil fuels and how to address the technical and societal challenges associated with their changing role. The conversation will include discussion of environmental remediation, maintaining the safety and reliability of existing fossil fuel infrastructure, and socioeconomic impacts in fossil fuel dependent communities.
