Daniel Thorpe

Daniel is a graduate student working in engineering and public policy. He is broadly interested in efficient, appropriate mitigation of climate change and rapid decarbonization of the world's energy supply. Specific interests at the moment include the possible expansion of nuclear power and highly complex but potentially low-cost mitigation efforts like climate-aware urban planning in new cities and developments, and transnational emissions reductions schemes like the CDM.

He is also interested in practices from Buddhism and Western developmental psychology that help us relax into more calm, well integrated, mentally flexible, and joyously open-hearted ways of being, including how these kinds of transformations underpin our ability to address climate change and other global challenges.
