Dr. Lee Schipper
Carbon in Motion 2050 for North America and Latin America
Lee Schipper, the founder of EMBARQ, the World Resources Institute (WRI) Center for Sustainable Transport, is currently Project Scientist for Global Metropolitan Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, and Senior Research Engineer for the Precourt Energy Efficiency Center at Stanford University. He has worked as a guest researcher at the OECD Development Centre, Paris, as a transport adviser to the Shell Foundation, a senior scientist at the International Energy Agency (IEA), Paris, and a Staff Senior Scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for two decades. Dr. Schipper earned his B.A. in music and Ph.D. at Berkeley in astrophysics, but has devoted his career to earthly problems of transport, energy and environment.
Dr. Schipper’s talk will focus on two low carbon transportation scenarios, Globalization and Glocalization, where carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions could be heavily reduced in North America and Latin America. The scenarios illustrate how different policy assumptions and energy intensities could reduce emissions through a long-term projection approach.
