Avoiding the worst consequences of climate change by reducing global carbon emissions to as close to zero as possible is one of humanity’s most pressing challenges. Prof. DuVivier will illustrate how critically this deep decarbonization project depends on rules that regulate everything from transportation to building to the legal ability to produce power in a decentralized way.
