On April 9, E3 Chief Scientist Jim Williams spoke to the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network chaired by noted economist Jeffrey Sachs, Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University. Jim was invited to discuss the recent paper by E3 and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Science, “The Technology Path to Deep Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reductions by 2050.” Dr. Sachs called the paper “the best single study” on the long-term transition to a sustainable, low-carbon economy, and urged that similar studies be conducted for “every country on the planet in the next two years.”
