On Friday, September 16th @ noon, Method to the Madness host Lisa Kiefer will interview Stanford professor Mark Jacobson. As a specialist in climate modeling and alternative energy, Jacobson has spent much of his career trying to understand, and find solutions to, global warming.
He thinks the US is now equipped with the necessary technology and economic means to get off of fossil fuels. He and colleagues, including UC Berkeley researcher Mark Delucchi, have created 100% clean, renewable energy all-sector energy plans for all 50 United States and 139 countries worldwide that include how each can achieve such a transition by 2050. To solve the problem of political will, he co-founded The Solutions Project — with actor Mark Ruffalo, businessman Marco Krapels, and activist Josh Fox — to engage policymakers, business leaders, and the public to try to put the 50-state plan into action. An interactive map summarizing the plans for each state is available on The Solutions Project website.
