In the current issue of Time magazine — a “survival guide” to global warming — writer Michael Lemonick highlights the much-lauded carbon-stabilization concept developed at Princeton.

“While the solution to global warming seems dauntingly complex, physicist Robert Socolow and ecologist Stephen Pacala have come up with a remarkably straightforward way of approaching it,” writes Lemonick. “To stabilize the world’s carbon emissions, they propose not chasing a single magic bullet but harnessing seven different categories of reduction, using available technology. Their goal is to draw a road map for reducing CO2 emissions that is both realistic and effective.”

You can read the Lemonick piece here. Socolow, a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at Princeton, also recently testified before the Senate on the future of energy in the United States. For those who will be in Princeton on April 12, Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University, will deliver the 2007 Taplin Environmental Lecture, sponsored by the Princeton Environmental Institute. The topic of Sachs’s talk is “Negotiating the Post-Kyoto Climate Change Framework.”
