Attributing Climate Change Impacts to Fossil Fuel Companies (Zoom Webinar)
January 20 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
We’re sharing this event from our friends at the Center for Climate Integrity:
Attribution science is a relatively new and rapidly developing field of research identifying the causal links between human activities and global climate change, extreme weather events, and the impacts on human and natural systems. Similarly, emissions attribution identifies the relative contribution of different entities to climate change, revealing that just 90 companies are responsible for nearly two-thirds of all carbon dioxide emitted since the 1750s. Within the context of climate accountability, attribution science has identified the responsible parties for communities to consider holding accountable for the harms created by the greenhouse gas emissions of their products. Join leading experts in the field of attribution science to learn about the different kinds of climate attribution (climate change attribution, climate impacts attribution, extreme weather attribution, and emissions attribution) and their implications and uses for holding the fossil fuel industry accountable.
