Bill McKibben & Real Climate Leadership Panel
May 14 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join community and movement leaders in an exciting panel discussion on how California can be a global model for the transition from a major oil-producer to a just and equitable 100% renewable energy economy. With our recent wildfires, droughts, oil spills, refinery and pipeline explosions, and deadly pollution, Californians already know how serious the climate crisis is, and have felt its impacts firsthand. The fossil fuel era is ending, and this is our opportunity to lead a global transition that protects our health, our environment, and our communities.
As Governor Jerry Brown hosts the Global Climate Action Summit this September 12-14 in San Francisco, we must be be clear about what real climate leadership looks like, and how California can lead the way on building a fossil free economy based on sustainability and justice.
