How do you want the future to be powered? Fossil fuels? Renewables? Both? Some argue that renewable energy isn’t reliable enough to power our economy; others say that renewables can be the major energy source within a decade. We are in a period of needing to choose between traditional and clean energy. It is critical that we envision our energy future now.
Join us for a Case Critical discussion featuring a former Big Oil president, a prominent atmospheric and energy scientist, and an environmental filmmaker. Sustainability reporter Eve Troeh will moderate the speakers for an evening that may change how you think about America's energy portfolio.
