Join us for a conversation with energy and climate expert Dr. Jesse Jenkins. Jenkins will share the research foundations that could make possible a transition to a zero-carbon environmental policy and the implications of economy-wide decarbonization efforts.

Jenkins recently served on the National Academies of Science Engineering and Medicine expert committee on Accelerating Decarbonization of the U.S. Energy System, was a principal investigator and lead author of Princeton’s landmark Net-Zero America study, and leads the REPEAT Project, which provides regular, timely, and independent environmental and economic evaluation of federal energy and climate policies as they’re proposed and enacted. He has delivered invited testimony to multiple congressional committees, and his research is frequently featured in major media outlets.

The conversation will be moderated by Adam Davis, director of the Lisska Center for Intellectual Engagement.

All Denison alums, families, students, faculty, and staff are invited to participate.

This event is part of the Lisska Center for Intellectual Engagement’s Minds Wide Open series, which promotes civil discourse and intellectual engagement.
