The city of Houston is commemorating the third anniversary of Hurricane Harvey with a series of online seminars detailing the city’s climate action plan.
Harvey devastated coastal communities and dumped upwards of 50 inches of rain across southeast Texas in late August 2017. Its trail of destruction left dozens dead and changed life in the city as we knew it.
The climate action plan, released in April, showcases how the city plans to meet the Paris Agreement goals of carbon neutrality by 2050. The plan is also designed to reduce greenhouse gases and establish Houston as a leader in the global energy transition from traditional energy sources.
The series of online seminars include speakers from Google, Tesla, BP and other top-level companies, as well as energy and climate-oriented experts.
