    My partner enjoyed the presentation, and I did the earlier one today. Jacobson's new project & network will further popular education on the positive economics of renewables. Was interested to see he collaborated recently with David Archer to write up an assessment of climate impact of large wind projects.

      Correction, it was Cristina Archer, not David.

    • Pavel

      According to my son who is the UofT student, it is on the 1st floor. If entering from St George, follow all the way down the hallway. Room on the right somewhere in the end.
