Hosted by NBC Boston Meteorologist, Tim Kelley, with our esteemed presenter, Dr. Tamara Shapiro Ledley
Dr. Tamara Shapiro Ledley is a climate and Earth Science thought leader and STEM education consultant, Secretary of the Education Section of the American Association for the Advancement of Science ( AAAS ), and Adjunct Professor at Bentley University. Dr. Ledley received her Ph.D. from MIT in atmospheric and climate science and her B.S. degree from the University of Maryland in astronomy.
Dr. Ledley will be facilitating an interactive workshop exploring the solutions that can help the world address climate change using the En-ROADS = Energy Rapid Overview and Decision Support model decision support model (more here). Some of the solutions that will be explored include reducing the use of fossil fuels, increasing renewable energy resources, increasing the energy efficiency of transportation and infrastructure, electrifying transportation, reducing emissions from land use, and removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The goal will be to determine what mix of solutions will keep surface air temperatures from increasing more than 2 oC by 2100.
