For Earth Day, Dean Indy Burke joined Yale University President Peter Salovey on his monthly Yale Talk podcast for a conversation covering a wide range of environmental issues including:
- The latest IPCC report and what can still be done to mitigate climate change.
- How ‘smarter’ cities can be an important part of the ‘mitigation equation.’
- How universities can drive solutions to climate change and help policy makers and the public implement sustainable actions.
- Carbon pricing, carbon capture, and the potential of the Yale Center for Natural Carbon Capture.
- The groundbreaking work being done by Dr. Tony Leiserowitz and the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication. (Preview: Meteorologists are key to influencing public attitudes on climate change in their local communities.)
- A Yale Center for Business and the Environment survey of global business students in which more than half say they would accept a lower salary to work with a sustainability-forward employer.
- How YSE is preparing future leaders to pursue positive change for society.
