The Earth Institute is proud to announce that we will take on a central role in the new Columbia Climate School. In order to make this transition seamless, over the next few months we will be transferring a number of Earth Institute properties to the Columbia Climate School starting with the State of the Planet blog. Read more about why we need a Climate School now more than ever and why Columbia is best suited for it from CU President Lee Bollinger and Alex Halliday, director of the Earth Institute and founding dean of the Columbia Climate School.

Rest assured, we remain committed to delivering the latest news in climate and sustainability from the Earth Institute, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, our other centers and programs, and Columbia University. Stay tuned as we continue to explore pathways towards a sustainable future.
