5月10日,由IOP出版社主办的Solving Climate Change电子书在线研讨会成功举办。本次在线研讨会邀请了本书的作者Jonathan Koomey和Ian Monroe,讨论了稳定气候所需的气候行动的五大技术支柱,这些措施包括:使一切都电气化、使电网脱碳、最大限度地减少非化石排放、实现效率化和最优化以及从大气中去除碳。并且,他们超越了以往大多数气候解决方案工作中狭隘的技术和政策重点,详细说明需要采取行动的另外三个“制度”支柱:调整激励机制、调动资金和提高真实性。本次在线研讨会的主要内容还包括:

  • 在政府、公司、投资人和个人层面评估减排潜力的方法。
  • 对真正应对气候挑战所需的巨大范围和快速变化有定量认识,同时提供现实可行的解决方案。
  • 两位作者就创建零排放和净气候积极系统向机构提出的循证建议。
  • 在分析气候解决方案时,将事实与虚构区分开来,并广泛听取决策者关于应对气候变化的现实途径。

研讨会的最后,两位作者还针对Solving Climate Change一书的内容进行在线问答。


Jonathan Koomey

  • Jonathan Koomey is a researcher, author, lecturer and entrepreneur who is one of the leading international experts on the economics of climate solutions and the energy and environmental effects of information technology. Jonathan holds MS and PhD degrees from the Energy and Resources Group at the University of California at Berkeley, and an AB in history and science from Harvard University.

Ian Monroe

  • Ian Monroe is a pioneer in climate solution investing. He co-founded Etho Capital, which runs the ETHO ETF and has helped decarbonize more than $100 billion in assets. He is also a co-founder of the Climate+Positive Investing Alliance and Oroeco, as well as an advisor to many climate programmes. With degrees in earth systems science from Stanford and the University of Oxford Artificial Intelligence Programme, Ian has also been educated by climate-fuelled droughts and wildfires on his family’s small farm.







Solving Climate Change

  • This book frames the climate problem in a comprehensive way and cuts through common conceptual confusions that impede rapid action. The first chapter describes the history, nature, and scope of the climate problem. The second chapter describes how to stabilize the climate by ending fossil fuels, minimizing non-fossil emissions, and creating a climate-positive biosphere. The authors identify five technical pillars of climate action needed to stabilize the climate, each of which gets its own chapter. These include electrifying (almost) everything, decarbonizing the electricity grid, minimizing non-fossil emissions, promoting efficiency and optimization, and removing carbon from the atmosphere. The book then moves beyond the narrow technical and policy focus of most previous climate solutions work by detailing three more “institutional” pillars that require action: aligning incentives, mobilizing money, and elevating truth.
