This is just a quick post to say thanks to the incredible student organizers at the Berkeley Energy and Resources Collaborative for having me moderate a panel on climate policy at their 10th Annual Energy Summit. As far as I'm concerned, there isn't any student energy group as well organized, enthusiastic, and sophisticated as BERC. It was really powerful to see so many BERC alumni attend the event to celebrate BERC's first (and very successful) decade.
In particular, I want to thank Dan Aas, who organized the climate policy panel. Outgoing BERC co-presidents Katie Pickrell and John Romankiewicz also deserve a huge amount of recognition for putting together another excellent summit. And of course I am very grateful to my amazing panelists, Michael Wara, Kate Larsen, and Valeri Vasquez. They managed to cover an enormous amount of material on the structure of the Paris Agreement, as well as the challenges and opportunities as the United States looks to implement its aggressive 2025 target. I heard a lot of positive feedback from the crowd and appreciate them taking the time out of their busy schedules to share their expertise.
