Climate Progress at the American Museum of Natural History Thursday night

If you live in the greater New York City area and are free Thursday night, I will be speaking on a panel at the American Museum of Natural History starting at 6:30 pm.

Details are here and below — and you have to admire any panel announcement that includes a picture of a concentrated solar thermal power plant, since it is perhaps the least well known core climate solution:

Is there still time to develop energy solutions for the 21st century? What will they look like? Joseph Romm, Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress, and executive director and founder of the Center for Energy and Climate Solutions; Ashok Gupta, Air and Energy Program Director, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC); and Ariella Maron, Deputy Director, New York City Mayor’s Office of Long-Term Planning and Sustainability, discuss efficiency goals, sustainable alternative energy options, and our outdated distribution infrastructure. The discussion is moderated by Michael Oppenheimer, Albert G. Milbank Professor of Geosciences and International Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School and the Department of Geosciences, Princeton University, and co-curator of the AMNH exhibition Climate Change: The Threat to Life and A New Energy Future.

And no, I don’t normally speak three times in one week. Or even twice. Just a coincidence.
