I have given this talk to community groups in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, at the Citizens’ Climate Lobby international conference, in Washington, DC, and will be appearing throughout the fall and winter of 2012-2013.

On Saturday, Nov. 12, 2011, I had the great privilege of delivering the Building a Green Economy talk at the Energy Security conference in Corning, New York. I had the added privilege of headlining the conference with the great Bill McKibben, whose work organizing millions to raise their voices for responsible energy and climate policy is of inestimable value to all humanity. Thank you to all who attended, to the organizers, and to Bill for his work and his contribution.
