Climate & Social Justice – Oct 3

Climate change and social justice are two intersecting crises that will define the coming decades on Earth. According to Prof. Kammen, addressing both challenges together makes each campaign more effective, both for meeting and setting new domestic climate and social justice targets, and as part of a coherent pro-justice, pro-poor, pro-job, and pro-climate export policy. Examples will be drawn from US domestic initiatives, as well as those in China, East Africa, and the Mekong region.

Dr. Daniel Kammen is Professor of Energy and founding director of the Renewable & Appropriate Energy Laboratory (RAEL) at UC Berkeley. He also has appointments with Cal's Energy and Resources Group, the Goldman School of Public Policy, and the Department of Nuclear Engineering.
