Princeton study outlines viable, affordable plans for America to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050

Five proposed net-zero emissions pathways involve standard expenditures, and save money in years to come, according to a study by University researchers.

The teams behind the study—led by the co-principal investigators Chris Greig, Eric Larson, and Jesse Jenkins of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment—determined that all five proposed net-zero emissions pathways involve expenditures that remain within the standard bounds of historical annual energy GDP costs, or about 4%-6% of the nation’s GDP.

U. researchers outline five-year transmission landscape of COVID-19

COVID-19’s five-year transmission landscape can range from “sustained epidemics” to “near-elimination” depending on the strength of immunity, vaccination rate and effectiveness, and social distancing protocol, University researchers found. The model presented in the study represents the range of pandemic outcomes on a sliding scale.
