Carbon dioxide removal (CDR) is the only class of mitigation options able to significantly reduce carbon in the atmosphere. A special issue of the journal Climatic Change explores CDR from the perspectives of integrated assessment, technology optimization, and environmental science.
Over 90 participants attended the two-day event. Participants presented new areas of research that complement established efforts already underway in the fields of carbon science, low-carbon energy, fluids and energy, and policy and integration.

Panel of current and former Barron Fellows discussing the field of Environmental Humanities. Rarely do photographers, artistic directors, musicians, novelists, poets, scientists, engineers, and scholars in religion, philosophy, and literature come together for two full-days to explore an emerging field of mutual interest. Such a unique gathering took place during Princeton University’s conference “Environmental Humanities in a Changing World.” Stephen W. Pacala, the
Princeton University has appointed as dean for research Pablo Debenedetti, a longtime Princeton engineering professor, vice dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science, and PEI associated faculty member.
Research outcomes from Princeton Environmental Institute’s Carbon Mitigation Initiative help advance a probabilistic assessment of the Antarctic contribution to 21st-century sea-level change.
PEI Associated faculty and others at Princeton have been studying extreme weather, natural disasters, and their impact on people and property for years, but Hurricane Sandy pushed their research to the forefront.
