About Yael Borofsky

Yael Borofsky graduated from Cornell University in spring 2009 with a degree in Human Development and is fascinated by the societal implications of climate policy and clean energy technology.

As a fellow at the Breakthrough Institute, she is conducting research and analysis on international decarbonization. Prior to arriving on the west coast, she caught the politics and policy bug during a semester in Washington, D.C. where she conducted original research on the efficacy of political documentary, specifically An Inconvenient Truth, and its impact on the agenda setting of political elites.

Yael regularly contributes to the climate and energy discourse at The Breakthrough Blog, Breakthrough Generation, CleanTechnica, and WattHead. Her passion for writing, however, extends beyond the climate world. While at Cornell, she worked as a sports writer and columnist for the Cornell Daily Sun, the nation's oldest independent college daily and a fantastic outlet for her passionate support of Philadelphia sports teams.

When she's not writing or talking about a clean energy present and future, Yael is an avid runner, hiker, and biker (mostly to work) and is looking forward to discovering the best of the Bay Area.
