Oil, fracking, wind, solar, nuclear, wave — where does nature fit into the development of all these energy forms? Put another way: Can nature and humanity’s ever-increasing demands for energy possibly coexist?
That’s the big subject of the next panel discussion in the series “The Future of Nature,” co-sponsored by The Nature Conservancy and WBUR, Boston’s National Public Radio news station. The event — “The Future of Energy” — takes place in Boston next Monday starting at 7:30 PM at the Boston Society of Architects and features these speakers:
* Dan Kammen, professor and director of the Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory, UC Berkeley
* Jigar Shah, partner, Inerjys clean-energy investment firm
* Joe Fargione, science director, North America Region, The Nature Conservancy
Anthony Brooks, co-host of WBUR’s Radio Boston, will moderate. We’ll cover the discussion next week here on Cool Green Science. But if you’re interested in attending, learn more (including how to register for the event) and read about The Future of Nature series, including June 10’s “The Future of Water” event.
