ATHENS – College Year in Athens (CYA) presents its next Virtual Lecture on Thursday, November 19, 12 PM EST / 7 PM Athens, on Energy and Climate Change: Rhetoric and Reality with Dr. Raphael Moissis, Chairman Emeritus of the CYA Board of Trustees and Chairman Emeritus of the Foundation for Economic and Industrial Studies (IOBE).
Dr. Moissis will elaborate on the differences between official rhetoric and reality on the two basic pillars of European policy for Energy and Climate.
The discussion will focus namely on a) the Green Deal as an effective means for achieving prosperity for Europe and b) privatization of the electricity sector as a route towards lower household tariffs and competitiveness for European industries. He concludes proposing a set of measures additional to the ones presently prescribed that are needed in order for the Earth’s carbon cycle to arrive at a new stable equilibrium.
Facilitating the discussion will be CYA Trustee Ulysses Kyriacopoulos, a Greek businessman and successful entrepreneur who has led a family business in Industrial Minerals for 30 years and has served on many companies' boards in Greece and abroad.
