In this talk, we will discuss meaningful ways in which individuals can reduce their carbon footprint and force their electric company to do the same. Because the amount of renewable energy that is available on the power grid fluctuates over time, we have the option to run our household appliances and climate control our homes preferentially when most of the power on the grid is carbon-free. MORE >We will discuss ways to know when clean energy is most available, and ways to avoid using energy when it is the most expensive and least clean. At the end of the discussion, individuals will be empowered to save money on electricity while reducing carbon emissions in their local area.
Have you ever asked yourself why you have no choice in how the energy you pay for is generated? On a hot summer day in Phoenix, do you think about electricity racing through wires to cool your home? Have you ever wondered why you don’t have any choice about where, or how, the energy you pay for is generated... and why climate change persists? MORE >Learn more about how vertically integrated monopoly utilities operate in Arizona, contrasted with a new energy equity model called Community Choice Energy that gives local customers choice over their energy mix, and increases renewable energy, lowers carbon emissions, and lowers rates, but without changing the way that energy is delivered to their homes or businesses.

Engage your audience with a real-time policy simulator. This is a fun way to learn more about climate change issues, solutions, and the relative effectiveness of policy solutions. Can the audience solve the climate problem (stay below 1.5°C)? The audience chooses the levers they think will have the biggest impact and as a group we see what happens. The tool simulates their proposed solution(s) instantly in “real-time”. MORE >Climate Interactive and MIT Sloan have worked together to build a worldwide, science-based climate simulator. The audience is engaged to offer suggested solutions to slow climate change. This stimulates discussions as to why actions may or may not be as effective as expected. We’ll also share bipartisan actions that the US Congress is considering and evaluate what impact those actions are likely to have on climate change. Participants leave the discussion with new insights into policy approaches.
Religious diversity has an important role in society as promoters of values and principles for peace and justice.
Heather will introduce a suite of technologies that make it possible to affordably decarbonize existing fossil fueled power plants. She will discuss factors that influence the affordability of this option, and factors that make this approach a potentially much faster way to decarbonize our energy system.
Ground your exploration of climate action within your specific faith tradition, or learn about interfaith approaches to faithfully cherishing creation. This presentation will be created to meet the identified objectives of the faith or interfaith community providing the invitation. MORE >Climate is a topic that can touch all areas of our lives, from the most personal and daily decisions about having and raising a family to global water, immigration or energy policy. How do we settle into the wisdom of our own faith tradition and allow it to assist us in solving global challenges with love and power, day in and day out, year in and year out?
This program is more about creating a shared journey into a faith community’s awareness of what cherishing creation means today than a presentation of information.
