Renee Kuriyan Wittemyer

MA, PhD

"23% fewer women than men are online in developing countries. If no concerted effort is taken, that internet gap is going to grow. When women see role models—people doing things—it enables them and empowers them to think, 'Well, I can do that as well.' And, accessing the internet and using technologies exposes them to an entirely new world," says ERG Alum, Dr. Renee (Kuriyan) Wittemyer. She is Intel's Director of Social Impact.

ERG Professor Kammen and Alumnus Zeke Hausfather on China’s Announcement of Ending CO2 Emissions

ERG Professor Kammen and Alumnus Zeke Hausfather on China’s Announcement of Ending CO2 Emissions

On a recent Scientific American article, ERG Professor Dan Kammen and Alumnus Zeke Hausfather was featured commenting on China's sudden announcement to end CO2 emissions within 40 years. Both ERG affiliates discuss the significance of the commitment, since this pledge marks the first time China and its top political leader have made a long-term commitment to reducing emissions. "Reaching that goal by 2060 will require a massive makeover of China's economy... If they are serious about this, it is certainly the biggest climate news in the last decade in terms of what will bend down global emissions," Hausfather said.
