Global Warming Solutions (at the Scale of the Problem)
EcoFaith Forum, Sunday, April 15 at 9:45 am.

So, what can WE do about the mess we've gotten ourselves into?  Join us for an engaging and informative conversation with J. Drake Hamilton, a Minneapolis-based expert in climate and energy policy who was recently named one of the top 12 climate communicators internationally. In 2015, J. witnessed the historic Paris Climate Accord, and in 2017 she showcased Minnesota’s nation-leading deep carbon reductions at the Bonn Climate Summit. As Science Policy Director for Fresh Energy, she focuses on developing and advancing clean energy solutions that maximize economic impact.
