COP26 Mitigating climate change damages through generalization of carbon pricing

At the invitation of Edmond Alphandéry, former Minister for the Economy, Dr. Graciela Chichilnisky will be a featured panelist on Monday, November 8, 2021, at the COP26 side-event, Mitigating climate change damages through generalization of carbon pricing,” which will take place in Glasgow in a hybrid format – in person and via Zoom. The event, organized by the Task Force on Carbon Pricing in Europe, with the participation of the Chinese International Finance Forum and the American Paulson Institute, will explore all the channels through which carbon pricing can contribute to accelerate the energy transition.

Putting impacts of climate change and how to get the world prepared on the COP26 agenda is crucial. It is clear, as well, that accelerating the pace of decarbonization is the best way forward to mitigate these impacts. The more we succeed, the less damage and loss we suffer.

Unfortunately, despite all endeavors around the world, we are still far from what should be done to significantly reverse the trend of carbon emissions. All economists and international institutions, more and more policymakers, more and more firms, and people around the world get convinced that giving a price to carbon is a major catalyst to succeed the energy transition.

The roundtable which will gather major personalities, policymakers, experts, and members of the business community, among others, will explore the various facets of carbon pricing and the necessity to introduce its generalization in the COP26 discussion.

Global Thermostat’s co-founder & CEO, Dr. Graciela Chichilnisky, will be a featured panelist in an exchange of views on “The sectoral approach and Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism,” beginning at 4:41 a.m. ET.

The full agenda, below, shows the event in local Glascow time.

Wharton Alumni Climate Change Conference

Climate change is the greatest challenge of our time. Keeping the climate safe for future generations will require a multilateral approach and trillions of dollars toward mitigation, adaptation, and restoration activities.

The Wharton Club of the National Capital Region (WCNCR) is pleased to announce the virtual Climate Change Conference from October 18-21, 2021, to increase awareness, examine core topics of climate change, and open doors for new opportunities and collaboration.

Global Thermostat’s own, Dr. Graciela Chichilnisky, co-founder and CEO, will be the lead panelist on October 20 at 11:20 a.m. – Commercial Climate Restoration Solutions. Joining the conversation with Dr. Chichilnisky is Brent Constantz, CEO of Blue Planet, Dr. Peter Wadhams, Emeritus Professor of Ocean Physics, and Head of the Polar Ocean Physics Group in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge, with Ms. Erica Dodds, COO of Foundation for Climate Restoration, serving as the moderator.

Panel 1: Commercial Climate Restoration Solutions, 11:20 a.m.

Meeting the Paris climate goals will require more than just a shift to renewable energy. The mitigation efforts to reduce CO2 emissions will slow down global warming but will not stop it because more CO2 will be added to the atmosphere by the time we achieve net-zero CO2 emission. Given the current geopolitical situation, it is also doubtful that we would reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. Even if all signatories follow the Paris climate accord, global warming of 1.5 degrees C to 2 degrees C would have devastating effects. Thus, efforts to sequester additional carbon through climate restoration are required to make the climate safe and healthy. This panel will give an overview of the scalable and marketable solutions to remove large quantities of CO2 from the atmosphere. You will hear from the innovators and entrepreneurs a few restoration solutions with the potential to remove billions of tons of CO2 from the atmosphere while creating marketable products from the sequestered CO2.

16th Carbon Dioxide Utilization Summit

Featured Speaker: Adjusting the Public Perception of CO2 from a Waste Material to a Raw Material

With climate change being a very real issue, change needs to come fast. One of the changes that can be made, is to ensure the avoidance of CO2 emissions, which can and is now being done using Direct Air Capture of CO2.

Global Thermostat pioneered DAC technology, driving down the cost per tonne of CO2, signing commercial agreements with important global clients and partners, while creating new markets and a profitable business. The company signed commercial agreements with some of the world’s most influential and leading companies and is in active negotiations (nearing term sheets) with additional industry-leading firms, creating a business model that focuses on generating recurring revenues, including CO2 sales, lease payments for proprietary equipment, royalties, sale of DAC and Carburetor plants, and upfront payments for the licensing of its technology.

On 08 September 2021 at 12:30 – 1:15 p.m. ET, you will hear from Dr. Graciela Chichilnisky, our CEO and co-founder, share her views on the future of commercialization of Direct Air Capture.
