Reflections on Fighting Climate Change
9/6/2019
11:30 AM - 2:00 PM

Rafe Pomerance is Chairman of Arctic 21, a network of organizations focused on communicating to policy makers and the public about the impact of climate change on the Arctic region. He is also a consultant to the nonprofit ReThink Energy Florida raising awareness on the impact of sea level rise in the state.

Mr. Pomerance has spent much of his career raising awareness of global warming and building support for climate solutions. His work plays a central role in Nathaniel Rich’s New York Times magazine article and subsequent book, Losing Earth. It tells the story of a handful of scientists, politicians, and strategists who were among the first to try to convince the world to act on climate change – and the fossil fuel industry’s fight to stop them.

Previously, Mr. Pomerance served as President of Friends of the Earth (1980-84), senior associate for climate change and ozone depletion policy at the World Resources Institute (1985-93), Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Environment and Development (1993-99) and climate negotiator, and President of the Climate Policy Center (CPC).
