Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Berkeley Earth has been supported in part by the Director, Office of Science, of the U.S. Department of Energy. The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has administered the financial support provided by the Department of Energy (Contract No. DE-AC02-05CH11231), and Berkeley Lab is a participating institution. Many of the participants work for Berkeley Lab.
Berkeley Earth is collaborating with Future 500 to engage and communicate with a broad array of stakeholders in the United States and abroad, so as to align key stakeholders on the science of climate change and on the most feasible paths to mitigate global warming. One area of focus is the advocacy of clean natural gas standards in China; we need not only standards, but incentives for China to produce natural gas cleanly and migrate away from coal. Industry can help China’s fledgling shale gas production, facilitating and expediting its development while at the same time helping to ensure high standards and best practices; while the NGO and environmental communities can provide critical input on, and potential enforcement of, clean natural gas standards.”
