About this event:
The last few months have seen an avalanche of climate commitments from governments and businesses, and the momentum is bound to grow in the lead-up to a high-stakes United Nations climate change conference in Glasgow this fall. Most of them are promising to get their greenhouse gas emissions down to "net-zero" by 2050. But evaluating those pledges and separating the substance from the spin can get...a bit complicated. Attend this session to get your own sense of how to sort out the details.
