On-Air with Andres Clarens (ENGR '99): How do we get to net-zero carbon emissions and solve climate change?

You are invited to join Andres Clarens (ENGR '99) for a discussion on environmental impact. Andres Clarens (ENGR '99), a Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Associate Director, Environmental Resilience Institute, and the Director of the Virginia Environmentally Sustainable Technologies Laboratory. Andres will share his thoughts on "How we get to net-zero carbon emissions and solve climate change" and then will answer questions from the audience.
