Paul Alivisatos, Director, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, will share his latest research on building a sustainable energy future, entitled Carbon Cycle 2.0 (CC2.0).

Most scientists now agree that the earth's climate is changing in large part due to human activity. Specifically, the average temperature of the earth is rising and the cause appears to be the introduction of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere from the burning of fossil fuels. However, the full story and potential solutions are much more complex.

Mr. Alivisatos and other scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are working in a broad new program of research to help provide the basis for a sustainable energy future. CC2.0 includes efforts in climate modeling, energy analysis, building efficiency, combustion, batteries and energy storage, biofuels, carbon capture and sequestration, solar PV and artificial photosynthesis.

CC2.0 seeks to provide a common energy analysis component for all of these efforts, as well as links to scenario-based climate models to help understand what the prospective impacts of each individual research effort could be. Join us to learn more!
