PennFuture, LaRoche College, and the Pennsylvania Interfaith Climate Change Campaign recently co-sponsored a conference in southwestern Pennsylvania called Cool Pennsylvania: Solutions for a Warming Planet. The event brought together citizens, organizations, businesses, and elected officials, all exploring the latest facts about global warming and its impacts, and the variety of solutions that we can and must employ.
Enacting critical legislation at the state level that will help Pennsylvania significantly change the way we make and use energy is one part of the strategy. A state policy panel moderated by PennFuture's CEO and president John Hanger included Allen Kukovich (director of Office of Governor Ed Rendell for the southwest region), Rep. Lisa Bennington (D-21), and Brian Hill (president and CEO of Pennsylvania Environmental Council).
In this podcast, listen in to another panel discussion from the conference. PennFuture's Jan Jarrett moderates the state solutions panel, including representatives from a variety of Pennsylvania organizations and businesses all working to reduce our significant contributions to global warming. You'll hear from Dick Rosey of Solar Power Industries; Tim Vought from Gamesa Energy USA; Eamon Geary from the Green Building Alliance; Brian Snyder from the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture; and Nathaniel Doyno from Steel City Biofuels. The panel discussion lasted approximately one hour, and included a range of excellent questions from the audience.
