Here's your chance to learn more about market-based approaches to solving the climate crisis and an opportunity to engage with local proponents. Efforts to put a price on carbon pollution are underway at the state and national levels. Come hear about proposals such as a carbon tax, existing programs such as California's cap and trade auction, and other efforts to transition toward a clean energy economy.
Panelists include Peter Barnes, co-founder of Working Assets; Dr. Linda Dismore (Diz) Swift of the League of Women Voters, creator of priceoncarbon.org, and a geologist with long experience in the energy business; Derek Walker of the Environmental Defense Fund, Associate V.P. Climate and Energy Program; Elyce Klein, Outreach Coordinator of the Alameda County chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby; and Laurie Williams, environmental attorney and Citizens’ Climate Lobby volunteer.
This is a wheelchair-accessible, free event sponsored by the League of Women Voters, Berkeley Climate Action Coalition, Citizens’ Climate Lobby, Ecology Center and David Brower Center.
