About this Event

Research leaders around the world believe that the next decade will require unprecedented, powerful, action to curb greenhouse gas emissions and avoid the most catastrophic climate impacts. Join us online for a special Earth Day conversation as Jeff Berardelli, CBS News Meteorologist, turns the spotlight on Alex Halliday, Director of Columbia University’s Earth Institute; and Maureen Raymo, Interim Director of Columbia’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.
