100% Renewable Energy Worldwide (and in CT) In 17 Years - Or Sooner
Creating More Jobs and Saving Money

A Presentation by Stanford Professor, Mark Jacobson and author Jeremy Brecher
Fossil Fuel use is rapidly altering earth's climate, producing ever more extreme weather. The extraction of fuel itself is wreaking ever greater havoc, and the ongoing disaster at Fukushima warns the world about the
dangers of nuclear power. However, new studies show that there is no technical barrier to transitioning the entire planet to 100% renewable energy within a very short time frame. Furthermore, this transition would create more jobs than expanding the fossil-fuel system, and it would save money, too.
On November 14th Professor Mark Jacobson will present via skype on his studies showing that a complete transition to 100% renewable energy is feasible by 2030. Jeremy Brecher, of Labor Network for Sustainability
and author of Jobs Beyond Coal will join the presentation. A Q&A will follow.
Mark Jacobson is a Senior Fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment as a professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering. He has co-authored landmark studies which demonstrate the feasibility of
transitioning to 100% renewable energy by 2030 in New York State, in the U.S., and Worldwide.
Jeremy Brecher is the author of more than a dozen books on labor and social movements, including Jobs Beyond Coal. He has written and/or produced more than twenty video documentaries. He has participated in numerous labor and social struggles.
