100% Clean, Renewable Energy and Storage for Everything Webinar
Thursday 13 August 2020 - 09:30pm - Thursday 13 August 2020 11:30pm
100% Clean

Please join us for this special online event featuring Dr. Mark Z. Jacobson who is a professor of civil and environmental engineering, and the director of the Atmosphere and Energy Program at Stanford University. He is also a senior fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment and the Precourt Institute for Energy at Stanford.

Dr. Jacobson will present his groundbreaking work on the scientific basis of the energy portion of the Green New Deal. He will also lay out the pathway to the use of 100% renewable energy to power cities, states, and countries worldwide.

There is no charge for this online event, but please register in advance. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

To Register:

Following the presentation there will be a Q&A session. Questions can be submitted in advance by emailing Karl Aldinger at They can also be posted in the chat room during the meeting.

Throughout his career Dr. Jacobson has concentrated on better understanding air pollution and global warming problems and on developing large-scale clean, renewable energy solutions to them. He has developed several computer models for simulating air pollution and how it effects climate including the first interactive model showing the combined effects of gas, aerosols and radiative air-pollution on weather systems. He also discovered that black carbon, which is the main component of soot particles, may be the second-leading cause of global warming after carbon dioxide.

In 2009, he and Mark A. Delucchi co-authored a pioneering report on how to power the world on renewable energy alone. “A large-scale wind, water and solar energy system can reliably supply the world’s needs, significantly benefiting climate, air quality, water quality, ecology and energy security ... [T]he obstacles are primarily political, not technical.” — Mark Z. Jacobson and Mark A. Delucchi, in Scientific American

Dr. Jacobson co-founded the Solutions Project in 2013, with actor Mark Ruffalo, businessman Marco Krapels, and activist Josh Fox.
