I was honored on my speaking tour in Australia to have two women drive 11 hours to hear David Archibald and me speak. People in the Bay Area don’t have to drive that far, or they can hop on BART. As many know, Joe Romm runs the blog Climate Progress.
While other bloggers wailed about how terrible it was that I was on a speaking tour, I’m doing the opposite, suggesting that this is a good opportunity to hear from the other side of the aisle and ask factual questions (assuming questions are allowed).

|Talk: Joe Romm: After BP, Climate Progress?|
Does the oil sloshing around the Gulf of Mexico improve or impede the chance of major energy legislation getting through Congress this year? After decades of debating climate science, is the United States making any progress toward acting upon it? A former official at the U.S. Department of Energy and a vociferous blogger, Joe Romm, Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress, gives his insight into the urgency of the climate crisis and the hope for technology to solve it. He also sounds off on what he says are distortions and inaccuracies in mainstream news coverage of the climate debate. Join us for a no-holds-barred conversation with one of the country’s most passionate clean-energy commentators. Purchase tickets online.
