Pathways to Decarbonization

Last week, 17 scholars and practitioners from four countries and multiple backgrounds (international NGOs, local NGOs, engineering, geography, and Political Science) gathered at the University of Toronto to discuss the state of the art on pathways to decarbonization and what it will take to both conceive of them and make them a reality.  The workshop kicked off with a keynote address by David Miller, former mayor of Toronto and former head of the C40 Climate Leadership Group (http://hosting.epresence.tv/MUNK/1/watch/334.aspx) . This was followed by an exciting day of intellectual exchange about decarbonization and ways to move across the practitioner/academic divide on this most crucial of issues.  I will be posting a summary of the workshop and our directions for moving ahead in the next few days.
