(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv) Rapidly melting arctic ice, catastrophic hurricanes, devastating wildfires, and record-breaking drought—scientists agree that the climate is changing, that it’s human caused, and that it will undeniably be one of the most serious problems facing the world’s citizens for generations to come. They acknowledge that technologies to combat climate change do exist. How can we come together to address this challenge which has become a partisan political issue in the United States in a way it has not elsewhere in the world? Join UC Berkeley Professor Dan Kammen, an internationally recognized energy policy expert and Mr. Tom Steyer, business leader and investor, for a lively and timely conversation to understand where we are now, the solutions at hand, the barriers we face, and what must happen to "overcome the partisan divide" to speed the transition to a sustainable planet. Moderated by Richard “Dick” Beahrs. Recorded on 10/05/2013. Series: "Richard and Rhoda Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley" [12/2013] [Public Affairs] [Science] [Show ID: 25870]
