Has The Clean Energy Revolution Finally Begun?
Nov 06 - San Francisco

IPCC’s October 2018 Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 ˚C (IPCC 2018) is a stark reminder of the global climate-change threat and a strongly motivating call to abate it.

While the challenges keep growing, our tools to green the economy have never been greater.  What is critical today is to rapidly scale up the ‘solutions science’ of technical, economic, social, and equitable social and policy approaches that are in keeping with the IPCC 1.5 guideline.

To accomplish this seemingly impossible set of objectives, an aggressive innovation-to-action pipeline is needed, not just in resource-rich economies like California, but in some of the poorest places on the planet.  This push of use-inspired, mission-driven research and scale-up will depend on California like never before.  Testing and implementing new technologies that benefit the disadvantaged, not just the affluent, building carbon-smart infrastructure, and preserving and repairing degraded and under-protected natural areas all must rise rapidly to local and global agendas.

Please join us on the beautiful 22nd floor conference center at Morrison Foerster to hear Dan’s views on a number of techno-social innovations and their potential roles in reshaping our communities and our relationship to nature.
