Sustainable Progress to Build the "Green Economy" and Solve Climate Disruption
+ "green' tips" for the Christmas Holiday Season
Meetings # 3,405 - Ending the year with a bang (not a whimper), naturalist and energy-environmental researcher Dennis Nelson argues that a RE-DEFINITION OF "PROGRESS" is essential to maintain and promote climate protection, ecological and public health, economic well-being, and energy security. Topics will include: A discussion of reforms under the fascinating field of environmental economics (a steady-state economic system), refutation of climate disruption science denial and policy delay, the problems of Canadian tar sands exploitation and the alternatives to oil, preservation of the National Park System (this year is the Centennial Celebration of the National Park Service), his testimony before the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on the Clean Energy Incentive Program (CEIP), his letter to Illinois politicians in opposition to the Exelon Nuclear Bailout in Springfield, and "green tips" for the Christmas Holiday Season.
