I co-presented on Sat, 2/7, 1:45 pm Session II – The Realpolitik of Transitioning to a Low-Carbon Economy. Thanks to all who filled every seat in our presentation; sorry to those many who peeked in, saw no seats and left.
I focused on the political barriers to progress. In other words, nothing will be allowed of, by and for We The People until we cut the purse strings held by the few who benefit from harming us and our planet Earth.
In this clear-eyed look at how our changing energy profile affects the economy, we explored the economic, political, scientific and environmental issue which must be addressed as the US and other developed countries migrate to low-carbon energy sources. We focused on environmental realities and priorities, positive and negative economic impacts of our changing sources of energy, scientific and technological limitations and enablers of change, and the political barriers to progress.
