A History of Decarbonization

The Society of Fellows hosts the Thursday Lecture Series (TLS), which runs regularly throughout the academic year. The Fall Semester TLS, our Fellows present their own work, chaired by Columbia faculty.

“A History of Decarbonization”

Lecture by Leah Aronowsky
Chaired by Marguerite Holloway

This talk tells the story of how scientists, policymakers, and corporations have grappled with decarbonization as a policy response to climate change. Over the course of the 1970s and 1980s, decarbonization advocates struggled to garner political support for the idea; they ultimately lost out to economists who championed a program of adapting to climate change’s consequences rather than combatting its causes. The talk situates the history of decarbonization as part of a broader story about the shifting boundaries of political possibility in the history of climate politics.
