Energy Visions: Three Compelling Cases for Conservation and Transition to Renewable Energy

 

To a growing number of people throughout the world, the case for addressing runaway climate change is obvious. Still, the sweeping policies needed to stave off further warming must address fundamental economic realities. We asked three nationally known energy policy experts to share their visions for an energy future that makes economic sense while achieving the carbon reduction goals necessary to ensure a safe and habitable planet.
 
The event will be February 19, 2015 from 7:30pm – 9:30pm in Dickinson Hall at Fairleigh Dickinson University, Metropolitan Campus, in Teaneck, NJ.
 
The event will be moderated by Clinton Andrews, professor of Urban Planning and Policy Development, and Director at Rutgers Center for Green Building.
 
Mark Jacobson of Stanford University, who is well known for his widely acclaimed, state-by-state vision to transition our nation to 100% wind, wave and solar power by the year 2050. Speaking with us by Skype, Jacobson will explain the rationale and methodology behind his comprehensive energy master plan and detail the realistic, state-specific goals that make economic sense for New Jersey.  
 
Dan Sosland, President of the non-profit Acadia Center, spearheads pragmatic implementation plans to reduce carbon emissions throughout New England. Sosland will outline specific actions that can be taken now and are actually being implemented.  
 
Speaking from the perspective of one of the world’s largest users of fuel and energy, the U.S. military, Captain Leo Goff, U.S. Navy, will illustrate how the military is confronting the impact of climate change in order to streamline logistics, cut fuel costs, improve military readiness and enhance our nation’s security.  
 
Presentations will be followed by a Q & A.
