Friday, April 9, 2010 at 8:30 AM - Saturday, April 10, 2010 at 6:30 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
We may already be past the tipping point on climate change. Where do we go after Copenhagen's failure?
For two days, U.S. and international academics, government officials, and policy analysts will join to study the economic issues associated with carbon emission, climate change, and emission regulation. The conference will offer important lessons on how to enact effective climate change policy in light of the United States’ fragile economy and the post-Copenhagen tensions between developed and developing countries.
