With recent record-breaking heat and the accelerating pace of polar ice melting, not to mention the increasingly severe storms, droughts and fires the world has witnessed over the last several years, many of the most dire predictions of climate scientists appear to be occurring even faster than anticipated. Political momentum from the Paris climate talks combined with the rapidly falling costs of clean energy solutions like solar and wind along with bankruptcy in the coal industry have us headed in the right direction, with the main question being how fast we can move. This panel will explore the latest findings in climate change science along with ideas for getting involved in clean energy entrepreneurship.
