ERG Professor Dan Kammen has recently been featured on various news media sources, including The Guardian, KQED, San Francisco Chronicle and more to discuss how COVID-19 has emphasized the need to fight climate change.
Furthermore, Kammen has joined a team of progressive policymakers in creating green policy proposals that would be included in an economic stimulus package.
“The Covid-19 epidemic is ravaging our tattered healthcare system and shredding our economy… We’re also facing the climate emergency… To tackle all these crises at once, we need a Green Stimulus that creates jobs and lifts up communities in ways that also slash carbon pollution, increase resiliency, and develop a just, modern economy,” Kammen states in The Guardian.
