“Embracing Clean Energy” is our first READmont panel discussion of three.
We look forward to an exciting discussion with three people coming from varied backgrounds, but all committed to a future using clean energy.
- Ms. Jessica Tovar, of the Local Clean Energy Alliance, Oakland, an NGO working in advocacy for clean energy, where she has worked for ten years.
- Mr. Angel Fierro , co partner in “PLEXUS Solutions, LLC”, joining large scale clean energy projects with capital.
- Dr. Max Auffhammer, George Pardee Jr. Professor of Sustainable Development and Associate Dean in the Division of Social Sciences at UC Berkeley. He is also an Assistant Professor of Agricultural and Resource Economics and International and Area Studies at UC Berkeley and Chair at the Political Economy, UC Berkeley.

More to Come
April 24 will be our Youth Summit on Environmental Justice, open to high school students across the Bay Area, ready to take action to preserve our planet.
All Piedmonters are encouraged to read “This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate” by Naomi Klein. Klein argues that climate change should not be put on a shelf and studied, but is a problem that requires examining and fixing the economic system that she sees as already in trouble.
