The Environmental Governance Lab invites you to join the panel discussion in the first pre-symposium webinar on carbon-lock in during COVID
About this Event
Early optimism that the pandemic lockdowns would significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions and disrupt the world’s reliance on fossil energy has started to fade. Our panelists will discuss what impact the pandemic has had on carbon lock-in, what exactly has and has not changed, and whether these changes are likely to endure.


Samantha Gross, Director of Energy Security and Climate Initiative at Brookings
Professor Jonas Nahm, Assistant Professor of Energy, Resources, and Environment at Johns Hopkins University
Professor Piers Forster, Professor of Climate Physics at University of Leeds
