 Congressional Briefing on Climate Restoration

Dear Colleague:

You should already have received an invitation to join MIT-educated physicist and Climate Restoration expert Peter Fiekowsky and representatives from several carbon removal startups for a fascinating lunch briefing and discussion about Climate Restoration on Wednesday, April 24th at 12:00pm.

Climate Restoration is the global endeavor to return the Earth’s climate systems to the safe and healthy state in which humanity and our natural world evolved. This requires returning atmospheric CO2 to safe levels of less than 300 parts per million (ppm) and restoring sufficient Arctic ice to prevent permafrost melt and the resulting disastrous methane emissions.

Experts will discuss methods to sequester CO2 into building materials, ocean-based technologies that can scale globally, and strategies to restore Arctic ice. The emphasis will be on proven technologies and solutions that can be deployed to restore a safe and healthy climate for ourselves and future generations. This event is sponsored by the Healthy Climate Alliance in collaboration with the Earth Day Network.

Date: Wednesday, April 24
Time: 12-1:30 PM
Place: 122 Cannon House Office Building
RSVP: Paul Zeitz at

Speakers Include:

  • Peter Fiekowsky- Founder and Chairman of the Foundation for Climate Restoration and the Healthy Climate Alliance

  • George Kats- Board Member of Blue Planet Ltd.

  • Steve Zornetzer- Executive Director of ICE911 and former NASA Association Center Director

  • Helen Mountford- Vice President of Climate & Economics, World Resources Institute (WRI)

The Healthy Climate Alliance (HCA) is the education, networking, and advocacy program of the Foundation for Climate Restoration. HCA’s global dialogue unites the public, policy-makers, and technical and business experts to promote the shared goals of reversing global warming and restoring a healthy climate. HCA encourages achievable solutions for drawing down excess carbon dioxide from our atmosphere and restoring Arctic ice by 2050.

The Earth Day Network’s mission is to diversify, educate, and activate the environmental movement worldwide. Growing out of the first Earth Day (1970), Earth Day Network is the world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement, working with more than 50,000 partners in nearly 192 countries to build environmental democracy. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.
