Event description

Description

As a result of rapid industrialization, China now frequently suffers from extremely high levels of health damaging fine particulate air pollution and agriculture damaging elevated surface ozone pollution. In addition, China’s emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the largest in the world. Both air pollution and climate issues have gained intense domestic and international attention with new Chinese government policies intended to reduce air pollution emissions and peak CO2 emissions before 2030. However, although many air pollutants are emitted from the same energy technologies that emit CO2, and air quality co-benefits from reducing CO2 are known, strategic planning to optimize dual achievement of both goals has not taken place.
Perry World House and the Earth & Environmental Science Department invite you to join Dr. Denise Mauzerall (Princeton) as she discusses her research evaluating current energy policies under consideration and possible future opportunities for 2030.
