Is 100% 'Renewable Energy Challenge' Achievable for NYC?

Thursday, Oct 9, 2008

On July 17, 2008, Al Gore challenged America to produce 100% of its energy from renewable, clean, and carbon-free sources in 10 years. What does this challenge means for New York City? We need to break the mold and push our thinking toward a greater sense of urgency, based on current scientific understanding of impending climate change. As "First City" to the world, New York can show how to leap ahead in dealing with renewable energy production and reduction of carbon dioxide emissions.

Sponsors: Green Science and Environmental Systems, a PS&E program at the New York Academy of Sciences Environmental Sciences Section

Moderator: George Hendrey, Queens College, CUNY

Speakers:
Klaus Lackner, Columbia University;
Sanjoy Banerjee, The City College of New York/CUNY;
Charles Komanoff; Komanoff Engineering Association

RSVP: NYAS
