“I use ‘disruptive’ in both its good and bad connotations. Disruptive scientific and technological progress is not to me inherently good or inherently evil. But its arc is for us to shape. Technology’s progress is furthermore in my judgment unstoppable. But it is quite incorrect that it unfolds inexorably according to its own internal logic and the laws of nature.”
Fellows will contribute to ongoing research projects on climate change related issues, including, but not limited to climate mitigation policy, land use and carbon sinks, and climate change adaptation. Applications from scholars working on advancing U.S. climate and energy policy with a focus on state and federal government policy interaction are also welcome.
Fellows are provided with a stipend, benefits, and some support for research and travel expenses. Interested candidates are encouraged to apply for other sources of funding.
