The Center for Energy Studies and the Consulate General of France in Houston hosted the event as part of FACTS (French Ameri-Can Climate TalkS), a series of public conferences in 12 cities across the United States and Canada involving academics, government officials, NGOs, political figures, journalists and entrepreneurs. The timing and subject matter were designed to contribute to civic dialogue as the world prepared for the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris in December 2015.
