Fellow Bay Area resident and Stanford professor, Mark Jacobson has fully electrified his home.  He is also one of the most influential thought leaders advising cities, states and nations on the most effective policies and mechanisms to make the transition to 100% clean, renewable energy. Learn how to make this transition happen in your own life!

This event is cosponsored by the Leagues of Women Voters of Solano County, CA and Portland, OR and is part of our 2022-23 Climate Speaker Series brought to you by the League of Women Voters of Piedmont and Piedmont Connect. The series will serve to educate constituents on a range of important topics to improve our understanding of the causes (sometimes surprising), perils (sometimes not fully recognized), and solutions to ongoing environmental pollution and climate disruptions.
This program will be recorded. You can watch it live or at a later date on our YouTube channel. The second half of the program will be a moderated Q&A session with questions from Zoom participants and YouTube livestream viewers. You will not see the event posted ahead of time on YouTube. It will appear once the program starts at 4pm Pacific Time on April 5th.
