Speaking Event: Climate Crisis - Obligation and Opportunity
Speaker: Michael Brune, Executive Director, Sierra Club
Hurricane Sandy, record wildfires and intensified cycles of drought and flood have awakened the American public to the climate crisis at hand. What few know is that the United States has become a global leader in the fight to reduce carbon pollution, while innovations in wind, solar and other renewables are generating more power, more jobs and a healthier quality of life every day. As the leader of America's largest and most effective grassroots environmental organization, Michael Brune, Executive Director of the Sierra Club, will discuss how averting the potential global catastrophe caused by climate disruption is also a historic chance to create a better world, powered by clean energy prosperity.
