Special Lecture with Lester Brown and J. Matthew Roney, co-authors of The Great Transition

Lester Brown and J. Matthew Roney

The energy transition is here. As fossil fuel resources shrink, as air pollution worsens, and as concerns about climate instability cast a shadow over the future of coal, oil, and natural gas, a new world energy economy is emerging. The old economy, fueled largely by coal and oil, is being replaced with one powered by solar and wind energy.

Lester Brown and J. Matthew Roney, co-authors of The Great Transition, will present and discuss their new book, addressing how we can (and must) move beyond fossil fuels.
