With Climate Week and the UN General Assembly starting in less than two weeks, we wanted to share a selection of recent Carnegie Council resources on climate change and environmental issues.
This has been one of our areas of focus over the past few years. We believe that climate change is a deeply ethical issue and it affects every realm of international relations. For more, check the Carnegie Council website.
In addition, the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G) continues to focus on expanding the conversation around effective and inclusive governance for emerging climate technologies, in particular, for solar radiation modification and large-scale carbon dioxide removal. C2G is impartial regarding the research, testing, or potential use of any proposed technologies or interventions (these are choices for society to make). For the latest information on actions around the UNGA, please go to C2G’s website.
Carnegie Council will also be hosting an event on solar power on September 19, “Solar Dominance + Citizen Action: Solving Climate Change By 2030.” Eban Goodstein, director of Bard College’s Center for Environmental Policy, will discuss new developments in solar technology and the role of the general public in helping to spread this form of renewable energy.

If you have questions or comments, please contact Chief of Staff Melissa Semeniuk.
Best wishes from all of us at Carnegie Council.
