Join us at Astor Perkins’ event on April 26th!

Find out how student activism, methane detection from space and agricultural research is helping with: Policies to spur deployment of large capital to climate action Reduction in methane gas in industries, urban environments and agriculture  Food security and agricultural resiliency on Earth It's free to attend and open to all. Register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/astor-perkins-quarterly-series-tickets-151677689051   The Role of Climate Activism on Legislation and Capital Nick Engelfried, Youth Activist & Author Ilana Cohen, Youth Climate Activist and Freelance Climate Journalist Satellite Detection of Global Methane Emissions Professor Steven Wofsy, Abbott Lawrence Rotch Professor of Atmospheric and Environmental Science, Harvard University More precise than other methane-sensing satellites that came before, MethaneSAT will allow scientists to track emissions to their sources and provide key data for reduction efforts. The MethaneSAT project has an ambitious policy goal: reduce global methane emissions from oil and gas facilities by 45 percent by 2025 and 70 percent by 2030. If achieved, it would have a similar impact on the climate over 20 years as closing one-third of the world’s coal plants. EDF plans to make the data publicly available — in near real time — to researchers, lobbyists, regulators, and others. Harvard’s Salata Institute for Climate and Sustainability recently awarded a grant to a multidisciplinary project, headed by the Harvard Kennedy School’s Robert Stavins, that involves 17 faculty members from six Harvard Schools and seeks to leverage publicly available data on methane — including from MethaneSAT — to affect policies and cut emissions. Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Plants for Space Professor Matthew Gilliham, Director of the Waite Research Institute, University of Adelaide and Director of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Plants for Space ARC Centre of Excellence in Plants for Space aims to create on-demand, zero-waste, high-efficiency plants and plant products to address grand challenges in sustainability for Space and on Earth. Significant advances in plant, food, and sensory science; process and systems engineering; law and policy; and psychology are expected to deliver transformative solutions for Space habitation – and create enhanced plant-derived food and bioresources to capitalize upon emergent and rapidly expanding domestic and global markets. Anticipated outcomes include industry uptake of innovative plant forms, foods, technologies, and commodities; and the ability to incorporate new insights into agriculture here on Earth for sustainability and resiliency.

        Your voices are making a difference. Harvard endowment and others are removing oil and gas from portfolios. Your activism has set in motion legislation and policies that are spurring billions of dollars into carbon reduction and capture. Act now!
