Two researchers from 3CSEP, Veronika Czakó and Sergio Tirado-Herrero were interviewed as part of Duna TV's "Strangers in the greenhouse" Idegenek az üvegházban) series on climate change. Veronika Czakó talked about the possibilities of climate action at the level of local governments, while Sergio Tirado-Herrero explored issues related to buildings' energy efficiency in the Hungarian context.
Two recent European policy discussions on energy use featured input from Diana Urge-Vorsatz, Professor in CEU's Department of Environmental Sciences and Policy -- more specifically, with her research on the so-called "lock-in effect". This research is indicating that policy-makers and developers are potentially missing out on substantial long-term efficiency improvements, by focusing solely on low-hanging fruit in their approach to the environmental retro-fitting of buildings.
The Center for Climate Change and Sustainable Energy Policy had the pleasure to host a public lecture by internationally renowned Canadian climate change expert Danny Harvey from the University of Toronto on April 23, 2009.
The highly acclaimed talk highlighted some of the latest scientific evidence and observations indicating that global warming poses a grave threat to human well-being and ecosystems throughout the world.
