Cornell Silicon Valley and Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future present: Climate Change and Mitigation Strategies


Slowing global climate change and mitigating its effects are among the greatest challenges facing our generation. Cornell University, its alumni, and its partners are attacking climate change from multiple fronts. The new director of Cornell’s Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future will frame the issues. Our panelists will discuss what climate models are telling us, as well as what we can do to move forward—from sustainable agriculture strategies to technological solutions for renewable energy and clean water.
