Dr. Jacobson at BAAQMD 2/13

 Mark-jacobson128sq.jpg Dr. Jacobson will present his plans for how California, New York and other places can achieve 100% renewable energy by 2050 to the Air District's Advisory Council. baaqmdlogosq128px.jpg 

These proposals can help make the goals of the BayCAP Resolution, passed by the Air District Board in November, a reality.

Dr. Jacobson’s work focuses on understanding severe atmospheric problems and assessing energy solutions.  In 2000, he discovered that black carbon – the main component of soot aerosol particles – might be the second-leading cause of global warming after carbon dioxide.  For this, he received the 2005 American Meteorological Society Henry G. Houghton Award and the 2013 American Geophysical Union Ascent Award. 

In 2009, Dr. Jacobson co-authored a Scientific American cover story on how to meet global energy needs with wind, water, and solar power.  

Dr. Jacobson’s Stanford team subsequently developed comprehensive plans for the United States, the State of New York, and the State of California to be powered by virtually 100% renewables.  He has also served on the Energy Efficiency and Renewables Advisory Committee to the U.S. Secretary of Energy.
