IPCC Report: A Call for U.S. Lawmakers to Act

According to the newly released report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the technological resources are available to solve the world’s looming environmental problems. According to the IPCC, the answer is developing massive amounts of renewable energy, encouraging energy efficiency and creating a global greenhouse gas cap and trade system. So, the solutions are in front of us, but how will U.S. lawmakers respond to the challenges at hand? We’ll have a report on whether the talk in Washington can translate into action.

Also in the podcast: Jason Bak, CEO and Founder of Finavera Renewables was recently on Capitol Hill briefing lawmakers on the potential for ocean energy generation in the U.S. He’ll join us to talk about the state of the industry and how lawmakers responded to his testimony. Inside Renewable Energy offers the latest in renewable energy news and information.
