Dirty Energy, Clean Solutions

350 Bay Area hosts the first ever grassroots Climate Conference “Dirty Energy, Clean Solutions." (DECS)” just weeks after the IPCC’s Working Group III on mitigation announced “large scale changes in the global energy mix” and rapid and dramatic cuts in GHG emissions could keep global warming to a sustainable rise of 2 degree C by 2050.

In fact, the IPCC suggests, a 1.5 degree C scenario is not out of range. If we act now. And act aggressively.

The May 9-11 Conference begins on Friday evening in San Francisco with a keynote address by Stanford University Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering Mark Jacobson. Jacobson, a recent guest on David Letterman, will present his plan for converting to renewable energy by 2050. His address precedes an interactive panel to engage in analyzing the legislative, regulatory and environmental justice implications of implementing the plan. Tickets for a speaker's reception are also available. 

Days two and three of the conference shift to Oakland’s Laney College and feature several panels and breakout sessions as well as trainings to strategize effective ways to disempower the fossil fuel attack and expedite the switch to clean energy.

Participants include San Francisco Supervisor John Avalos, a Bay Area Air Quality Management District board member; Shannon Biggs, Global Exchange; David Turnbull, Oil Change International; Madelaine Stano, Center for Race, Poverty and the Environment; Andreas Soto, Communities for a Better Environment; Penny Opal Plant, Idle No More; and Latrice Carter, an anti-fracking activist from Carson, California.

Mark Hertsgaard, author of HOT: Living Through the Next Fifty Years on Earth,  will discuss “Organizing for the Future." Post Carbon Institute Lead Fellow and Peak Oil Expert Richard Heinberg will present “An Oil Industry Overview.” 

Register and buy tickets now. Rates are $50 for the entire conference and $30 for Friday evening.
