Bill McKibben: “It’s exciting to hear that Boulder is taking firm control of its own energy destiny. It’s something we’re going to have to do all over the country to have any hope of dealing with our carbon mess. Local food–and local electrons!”

With recent passage of Ballot Measures 2B and 2C, Boulder now has the power to create a clean community-based energy future that can serve as a model to other cities around the nation of how to reduce carbon emissions and stimulate the local economy.  We heard from local experts and officials about what a clean energy future in Boulder could look like and what’s next.

Bill McKibben discussed the importance of such local efforts, current climate challenges and successes, such as President Obama’s announcement to delay the Keystone XL Tar Sands Oil Pipeline – a move top analysts say will likely kill the pipeline.  This announcement came about a week after 12,000 people surrounded the White House to oppose the pipeline.  For the first time in decades, thousands of Americans came together to send a physical, dramatic message about our future–and we won!

Join us and get involved in the inspirational movement to protect our climate, oceans and our planet!
