Professor Robert Verchick presented a lecture titles Lights Out: Energy, Resiliance, & Fairness at The New School in New York City. He was joined by Michelle DePass, former Assistant Administrator at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and environmental policy Professor Dr. Cecilia Martinez.
In a story for the Tishman Center blog, Rebecca Fuger writes “Professor Verchick shared that the biggest thing that needs to change economically are not subsidies, but global investments. Global banks are now incorporating the carbon footprint in their investments. The future will be decarbonized by getting that huge amount of global investment in going in the right direction.”
