Comprehensive Report on Creating an Equitable Low-Carbon Future

Researchers at two southern California universities have created a comprehensive report on how we can create a low-carbon future without burdening poor people who are already suffering the most from climate change. From an article in ScopeLA:

“Last year, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a groundbreaking report which found that countries must take drastic action within the next twelve years in order to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. Specifically, we must transition to a low carbon economy and we must do this faster than we previously thought. We must make investments in clean energy and green career training opportunities at a scale that we have not yet seen before. But how do we make sure this shift happens in a way that’s equitable for workers and communities? Researchers at USC PERE and Occidental College have teamed up to help answer this very question in a new report, “A Roadmap to an Equitable Low-Carbon Future: Four Pillars for a Just Transition”, which is out today!”
