Decarbonizing the U.S. Energy System: A Science Policy Fellows Event


At UC San Diego, we are tackling the interrelated policy and technology challenges that must be addressed to get to zero global carbon emissions in a world where costs matter. What will it take, and how do we get there? Can the U.S. be a global leader, paving the way for other developed economies to follow? A panel of School of Global Policy and Strategy professors will discuss the feasibility of the U.S. removing carbon from its energy system, as well as explore what strategies and organizational infrastructure needs to be in place.


  • Michael Davidson, Assistant Professor, GPS and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department
  • Gordon McCord, Associate Teaching Professor, GPS
  • David Victor, Professor and Center for Global Transformation Endowed Chair in Innovation and Public Policy, GPS
  • Moderated by Kate Ricke, Assistant Professor, GPS and Scripps Institution of Oceanography
