A question that I have for the group is what are some other great quotes (especially from women) that help explain these values! :-)
Susannah Tuttle
26:50
The team wants to build on this!
Michael

Michael Brown, Sustaining Way, Greenville, SC
Don Ferber
29:43
Responsibility won’t change, but wondering if you have thoughts on how the impending worldwide depression may impact capacity and willingness, and also if there are any opportunities in this?
Amelia Diehl (SustainUS) - she/her
29:59
Which policy was enacted in 1990 again, to begin that obligation? (I should know…)

Really helpful info, still processing it…

37:37
Yes! So much to process…
Michael

Awesome to hear the underlying historical timeline
Dallas Conyers
41:49
OpEns up a huge discussion on Regenerative Ag and Habitat Restoration
Amelia Diehl (SustainUS) - she/her
43:01
yeah, f those offsets!
Michael Malcom
43:25
How does lost and damages factor into this?
Rick Joye
45:05
This is Alecia with Sustaining Way. What are the most critical technologies that developing countries need to meet full mitigation potential?
Michael Malcom
45:22
If it does factor in, how do we deal with not being to discuss funding during negotiations?
Michael Malcom
45:55
Sorry, I'm typing from my phone.
Don Ferber
45:55
One thing is that emissions are temporarily reducing currently from less travel and production.
Don Ferber
50:44
How is what countries “can” do measured? Is it by cost effectiveness, technological or other capacities, or some other factors?
Christian Holz
51:20
Michael, the Civil Society Equity Review, which is also using this framework for its annual equity assessments, focussed its annual report in 2019 on Loss and Damage, which has a short section on how this model could be used to “share” Loss and Damage costs. Report is here: civilsocietyreview.org/report2019/
Michael Malcom
52:54
Thanks Christian
Amelia Diehl (SustainUS) - she/her
56:15
can anyone link to Charlotte gathering (even though I’m sure plans are changing, etc)?
Christian Holz
56:40
Don, in our model, the “what countries can do” line in the charts that Brandon showed is an illustrative line, where we apply the same reduction below baseline projections that would be required globally to each country. The “real,” non-illustrative line would depend on detailed, country-by-country socio economic modelling, which is beyond the scope of a global equity model like ours (which is why we use these relatively crude illustrative lines).
Don Ferber
58:44
Thanks, Christian. Presume there were some underlying assumptions that I’m not clear as to what they’re based on.
Sivan
59:19
I'll add to Christian's comment... what the Sander's team did was they decided the "what the US can do" line based on detailed work by a bunch of energy specialists, economists, labor economics, etc., who they tasked with coming up with as ambitious a US effort as possible.
Don Ferber
01:00:57
More on the second chart as to the assumptions of what they can do.
Amelia Diehl (SustainUS) - she/her
01:01:10
Wondering also about roles of corporations more than countries, in fair share? Ie we know names of fossil fuel execs who are largely responsible for climate crisis, esp considering close ties between govt and private industries
Christian Holz
01:02:04
Don, the global pathway we are using is a very ambitious 1.5°C consistent pathway, which was developed using so-called Integrated Assessment Models, which model climate and economy at the same time and try to find the least-cost path, given certain assumptions, to the desired outcome (e.g. 1.5°C). The pathway we’re using is the so called Low Energy Demand scenario, which is really quite fascinating. It’s featured as “P1” in the Summary for Policy Makers of the IPCC’s 1.5°C Special Report.
Susannah Tuttle
01:02:13
Thanks for all these questions… I am going to copy the entire chat box and we will send the questions out with the recording so we all have the discussion!

Susannah Tuttle
01:02:52
— Really excited about figuring our next steps on how to create this virtual roundtable!
alex easdale
01:03:32
Q: further elaboration in GND and international justice and what that looks like from implementation perspective
Christian Holz
01:03:38
(For more details on the Low Energy Demand scenario, I have a 1 page summary on page 15-16 in this report: https://www.boell.de/sites/default/files/radical_realism_for_climate_justice_volume_44_8.pdf)
Don Ferber
01:03:45
Christian, so it sounds like the model is based more on the need to achieve the goal rather than capacity? Perhaps there more detail in the IPCC report as to how.
Michael
01:03:57
What would be the overall reduction if there was a specific focus on the Climate Gap that affects communities of color?
Susannah Tuttle
01:04:19

“And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently."And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal."And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed."---- written by Italian Journalist, Irene Vella.

Here’s what I was going to read - but y’all can read it for your own time ~ I am meditating on it everyday! Wishing you all health & wellness!
Amelia Diehl (SustainUS) - she/her
01:08:23
thanks for that Susannah!
Brandon Wu

USCAN is having a Virtual Happy Hour on Tuesday. Here is the link: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/upAsd-GsqTwuXbkIOWtGFlqzzRLIGm-d The idea is to talk about whatever you wish – we just want hear how everyone is doing :)
Susannah Tuttle
01:08:54
NO worries!! We need an entire 3 day conference for this!!! :)
Sivan
01:08:55
Strongly agree with Brandon and Tom on this. How to "globalize" the GND is a huge issue, and this is the time to have the discussion and help define the answer.
Michael
01:09:38
Background ready for the forefront! Thank you both for your answers.
Brandon Wu
01:09:45
we'll be in touch about a roundtable discussion on these topics soon!
