Lesson 4 Writing Assignment
Activity Details

Pacala and Socolow (2004) demonstrate that it is possible to scale up current technologies to stabilize carbon emissions over the next 50 years. They explain that all of these technologies are already used at industrial scales and, consequently, are feasible options for massive implementation. Socolow revisits the concept of stabilization wedges in 2011.

Choose one stabilization wedge from the readings and research our current progress toward achieving it using both assigned readings and additional supporting materials if desired.
