Electrify Your Home, County, and State!

April 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Electrify Your Home, County, and State!

Summary: We have 8 years left to rapidly cut fossil-fuel emissions, but now the economic tide has turned because clean energy has become cheaper than fossil-fuel energy. The earlier we adopt clean energy, the more money we save. This is true at any scale—a state, county, business, or household.

  • Civilization has only a brief window left to make dramatic shifts in our polluting habits.
  • The major new paradigm of this talk is how clean energy tipping points are creating a new economic and political landscape.
  • The co-benefits of decarbonization are all local and immediate—thus, instead of scaring voters with glaciers that are melting in Antarctica, governments should now facilitate and accelerate saving money by abandoning fossil fuels.
  • For every household, business, or jurisdiction, the earlier the transition to clean energy, the more money is saved.
  • New scenario-modeling tools will be demonstrated for Oregon, Hood River County, and other counties.
