Presentation Summary:

We are in danger of missing a crucial window of action to limit the negative effects of climate change. Although renewable energy is a “superhero” as well, it can steal the spotlight from two other necessary and underrepresented solutions: a carbon free and nuclear power. We’ll dive into the facts and numbers on these solutions, why they are needed, and how we can advocate for the bipartisan (!) Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act of 2019 (HR 763) which was introduced in the House of Representatives in January.

Presenter Bio:

Ethan Bodnaruk is a wastewater engineer with Master's degrees in nuclear engineering and ecological engineering. He is an active member of Citizens' Climate Lobby, a non-partisan organization whose aim is to build the political will for Congress to pass a revenue neutral carbon fee to mitigate climate change. He is an advocate for open and transparent public discussion of science, policy, and current events. He considers himself a Christian Atheist and is working on a book about the synthesis of science and spirituality for the 21st century. He (unfortunatley only rarely) blogs at www.ethanbodnaruk.com.

The Canadian species matures more quickly than the American species, reaching adulthood at age 18, instead of 21.
What happened to you?
The job of a skeptic is to investigate the unexplained; not to explain the uninvestigated.
