Sustainability Economics Energy

Climate science and energy innovation can help give us a bigger economy as well as a cleaner environment. We are the first generation that can build a sustainable energy system to power everyone almost forever while avoiding the most damaging effects of the large climate changes that will come if we burn before we learn.
Dr. Richard Alley has ranged from Antarctica to Greenland to help learn the history of Earth’s climate, and whether the great ice sheets will fall in the ocean and flood our coasts.  With over 250 scientific publications, he has been asked to provide advice to the highest levels of government, and been recognized with numerous awards including election to the US National Academy of Sciences and the Royal Society.  He hosted the recent PBS miniseries Earth: The Operators’ Manual, and has been compared to a cross between Woody Allen and Carl Sagan for his enthusiastic efforts to communicate the excitement and importance of the science to everyone.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
