When: Wednesday, December 2, 2015 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)

In Greening the Global Economy, Pollin offers a concrete solution to our global crisis. He takes on the widely-held belief that protecting the environment and expanding job opportunities are conflicting goals, and offers hard numbers and original research as well as studies from all points along the political spectrum (including the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the World Bank and McKinsey & Co.) to prove it wrong and counter with a bold solution: Pollin determines that, “The global economy can achieve the emissions reduction target if most countries devote between 1.5 and 2% per year of GDP to energy efficiency and clean, low-emissions renewable energy sources.” What’s more, Pollin shows how working people in all regions of the globe will benefit — in many cases substantially — from the overall growth in job opportunities generated by clean energy investments.

Robert Pollin is Distinguished Professor of Economics and Co-Director of the Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He is also the founder and President of PEAR (Pollin Energy and Retrofits), an Amherst, MA-based green energy company operating throughout the United States.
