Climate solutions may involve reducing sources of greenhouse gas emissions or managing impacts. I’ll talk about some recent projects my group has led to assess prospects for reducing particularly difficult-to-abate GHG emissions as well as for avoiding the mounting impacts of wildfire in California and the western U.S.


Steve Davis is a Professor of Earth System Science at the University of California, Irvine, where he researches the sources and socio-economic drivers of GHG emissions, impacts of global environmental change on human systems, and sustainable solutions. He is also chair of the external science advisory board of Watershed, a carbon accounting start-up, and currently serves on the Technical Council of the Science Based Targets Initiative.
