      Impacts of Energy on the Global Climate / Economy Topic of Lecture
      at
      SSU Environmental Center
      The "Energy and the Environment: Vision and Solutions" lecture
      series
      to be held in the Environmental Technology Center at Sonoma State
      University
      from 4-6 p.m. on Wednesdays from January 30 - May 8 will host on
      February 20,
      Jon Koomey, Staff Scientist and Group Leader at Lawrence Berkeley
      Laboratory.
      Dr. Koomey will be speaking on the "Economics of Climate Change
      Mitigation".

      Speakers have been chosen "to inspire and inform about how
      building
      design and the production and use of energy can lead us into a
      sustainable
      future for our society," says Dr. Alexandra von Meier, director of the
      ETC.

      The public is welcome to attend, free-of-charge, any of the
      lectures.
      There is an SSU parking pass required ($2.50 cost). The series is an
      SSU
      course in the Department of Environmental Studies and Planning (ENSP
      #444)
      open to all SSU students, faculty, and staff.

      This talk will summarize the November 2000 assessment by five
      national
      laboratories of the costs and potential for reducing carbon emissions in
      the
      U.S. (for details, see <http://enduse.lbl.gov/Projects/CEF.html>).
      This study, which built upon an earlier study that influenced the
      Clinton administration's stance on the Kyoto treaty, evaluated a wide
      range
      of options for reducing carbon emissions, including demand side
      efficiency,
      renewable power sources, more efficient fossil-fired generation,
      cogeneration, and nuclear power.
      It showed that significant carbon reductions were possible with
      little
      or no net cost to society.
      The study was summarized in a front page article in the Sunday New
      York
      Times in Spring 2001, and is the most comprehensive study of options for

      reducing carbon emissions ever undertaken by the U.S. government. The
      speaker, who led the team conducting the integrated modeling for this
      study,
      will place it in the context of the broader policy debate about climate
      change, and answer questions about climate change economics and other
      related
      issues.
