Episode Description

Author John Berger conducted extensive research for over six years, interviewing governors, mayors, ranchers, scientists, engineers, business leaders, energy experts, and entrepreneurs, as well as carbon farmers, solar and wind innovators, forest protectors, non-profit leaders, and activists from across the nation and beyond. Despite expected pushback, the book explains how replacing the fossil-fuel system with a modernized, clean-energy economy can create tens of millions of new jobs and save trillions of dollars, positioning climate protection as the greatest economic opportunity of our time. Solving the Climate Crisis, a book that is both optimistic and critical, presents a feasible solution for saving the environment. It highlights the power of committed individuals and stresses the importance of collaborative government and private-sector climate action. The book focuses on three key areas for action: the technological dimension, which includes transitioning to 100% clean renewable energy through innovations such as clean-steel, “green” cement, and carbon-reuse companies; the ecological dimension, which emphasizes enhancing and protecting natural ecosystems, forests, and agricultural lands to safely store greenhouse gases and restore soils, transforming how we grow, process, and consume food; and the social dimension, which calls for updating and creating new laws, policies, and economic measures to recenter human values and reduce environmental and social injustice.

Women, Life and Science

Wednesday at 7 AM Pacific on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel

We are women, living a full life, have a professional career in science or in some form or another have been involved in the industry. We have stories to tell and knowledge to impart. We overcame challenges, uncertainties and continue to navigate the ever evolving professional and personal balance. We share in kindness and we share openly. We are grateful for many things. We have little regrets but easily forgive ourselves for our missteps. Women, Life and Science is the open forum for dialogue, knowledge presentations and story-telling.
