Consequences of Climate Change

Opening in 2021
Madison Square Park
New York City

Installation

For Madison Square Park Conservancy’s 40th public art commission, Maya Lin will realize a new, site-responsive installation that brings into focus the ravages of climate change on woodlands around the world. Ghost Forest will take the form of a towering grove of spectral cedar trees, all sourced from the region and presented in sharp contrast to the Park’s lush tree line. The installation builds on Lin’s practice of addressing climate change within her work and serves as a call to action to the 60,000 visitors who pass through the Park daily.

The New York Times Climate Hub

Starting Nov. 2 2021, at SWG3 Studios, Glasgow, and online.

In concert with the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), scheduled to take place in Scotland, this November, The New York Times is setting up a 10-day event featuring live journalism, thought leadership and action on climate change. Called The New York Times Climate Hub, it will be moderated by climate reporter Somini Sengupta.

CCR Netting Zero Climate Series_ Join the Conversation on May 20 - The New York Times

Netting Zero Climate Series: Join the Conversation on May 20 – The New York Times

By Morgan Stanley

Thursday, May 20
1:30 p.m. E.T. | 10:30 a.m. P.T. | 6:30 p.m. B.S.T.

To build a truly sustainable world, we need to fundamentally redesign the economy to replace our linear approach of “take, make, waste,” and create a circular economy promoting sustainability by design. This would reduce carbon, cut pollution and help protect biodiversity – but can a circular economy advance broader systemic change?

CCR Webinar Invite _ The Biden Administration’s Climate Agenda_ A Conversation with Gina McCarthy _ May 18

Webinar Invite | The Biden Administration’s Climate Agenda: A Conversation with Gina McCarthy | May 18

Tuesday, May 18, 2021 | 12:00-12:45 p.m. EDT
Zoom Webinar

During last month’s Leaders Summit on Climate, President Biden signaled the United States’ resolve to find solutions to climate change. The Administration’s new target — the “Nationally Determined Contribution” (NDC) — calls for a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 50-52% from 2005 levels by 2030. What measures will the Administration prioritize to deliver these results? Can it secure bipartisan support for related infrastructure investments? How will Washington encourage large-scale deployment of zero-carbon energy and cushion the impact on workers in legacy industries?

Join the Center on Global Energy Policy at the 7th Annual Columbia Global Energy Summit as we welcome Gina McCarthy, National Climate Advisor at the White House, to discuss the Biden Administration’s climate agenda in a conversation moderated by Jason Bordoff, Co-Founding Dean, Climate School, Columbia University; Founding Director, Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia SIPA; and Professor of Professional Practice in International and Public Affairs, Columbia University.

This webinar will be hosted via Zoom. Advance registration is required. Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email with access details. The event will be recorded and the video recording will be added to our website following the event.

This event is open to press, and registration is required to attend.
