Robert Howarth, the David R. Atkinson Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, and a fellow with the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future has studied global warming for 40 years. His research focuses on methane as a greenhouse gas, and demonstrated large methane emissions from the natural gas industry, particularly from shale development.

Cornell's delegation to COP21 provides a spotlight into the depth and breadth of climate challenges – and the immense energy focused on finding solutions. From critical thinking about human dimensions of climate change, to methane’s role in rising GHGs, to soil-based solutions and climate-resilient agriculture, Cornell’s thought-leaders are bringing their energy, passion, and innovative thinking, to the Paris conference.
