Climate Action

Another World Is Possible: Rethinking the Energy Paradigm: See it on YouTube

What will it take to get rid of dirty fuels and make renewable energy possible?

This was the topic at the forum hosted by Climate Action at the Brooklyn Peace Fair on April 28, 2012. Panelist Lisa DiCaprio, associate professor at NYU and founding member of RenewNEWYORK, says we have the capacity to solarize 165,000 rooftops in New York, but we’re held back by short-sighted funding mechanisms. “We’re facing a planetary emergency,” says Sean Sweeney, director of Cornell’s Global Labor Institute, and the only way we’re going to be able to make the switch from dirty energy is through a democratic planned process. “The movement against fossil fuels needs to embed into its arguments the need for public ownership.”
