America's Big Year of Climate Action: A TILclimate Liveshow

Wednesday, April 19, 2023 at 11:00am to 12:30pm

MIT Museum, E28-266
314 Main Street, Gambrill Center, Cambridge MA 02142

The first liveshow from MIT's award-winning TILclimate podcast welcomes Dr. Elisabeth Reynolds to break down America's big new climate investments.

Between November 2021 and August 2022, the United States passed a series of bills featuring the largest investments in climate change solutions in history. But the size of these investments is not the whole story. They also commit the U.S. to a new approach to climate: creating large consumer markets, demonstrating new technologies quickly, and manufacturing at a massive scale at home.

Join MIT's TILclimate podcast for our first live event, as host Laur Hesse Fisher sits down with Dr. Elisabeth Reynolds—Lecturer in the MIT Department of Urban Studies and Planning, former Special Assistant to the President for Manufacturing and Economic Development in the White House, and a partner in the investment firm Unless focused on industrial transformation—to understand the new course of American climate action, why it came about, and what it means for the U.S. and the world moving forward.

The show will take place from 11:00 to 12:30 with time for audience questions, and will be followed by a light lunch for all attendees.

Hosted by the MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative, with support from the MIT Climate Nucleus. Presented as part of Earth Month at MIT.
