Reducing carbon emissions is at the heart of climate change mitigation. There is a nascent and growing scientific interest in carefully measuring the carbon involved in developing and producing alternative energy and burning alternative fuels, like biofuels. In this podcast, Andrew Friedland, the Richard and Jane Pearl Professor in Environmental Studies and chair of the environmental studies program, talks about the current science of carbon accounting and some of the complexities to this work.
