Climate Change Optimism: from scarcity to abundance in clean energy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Energy is responsible for 60% of the world's CO2 emissions. Generating clean, renewable power is far and away the single biggest solution in the fight against climate change. This could be the cornerstone of how we re-build our economy, yet Britain's energy policy is up the spout and we have no plan for how to cut CO2 emissions and stop the lights going out. When it comes to energy, everyone seems to have different sets of lies, damned lies and statistics. So Robert Webb, founder and Chairman of Quiet Revolution wind turbines and new startup cleansource.me, will lead a discussion grounded in physics and hard facts. How can we speed the rapid construction of a renewable power infrastructure when we know for a fact that humanity can provide abundant clean energy to all, affordably and quickly, with current and proven technologies? Robert is joined by Stephen Tindale, a climate and energy expert who has been an executive director of Greenpeace and is co-founder of www.climateanswers.info. The discussion will explore how to give the facts and data to the people, how communication and enrollment are essential to enabling the transition and how real and virtual networks can help.
