Presentation Summary:

We are in danger of missing a crucial window of action to limit the negative effects of climate change. Popular calls for 100% renewable energy can mislead and distract from two necessary and underrepresented solutions: a carbon fee and nuclear power. We’ll dive into the facts and numbers on these solutions, why they are needed, and how we can advocate for the bipartisan (!) Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (HR 7173) which was introduced in the House of Representatives in November 2018.

Presenter Bio:

Ethan Bodnaruk is a wastewater engineer with Master's degrees in nuclear engineering and ecological engineering. He is an active member of Citizens' Climate Lobby, a non-partisan organization whose aim is to build the political will for Congress to pass a revenue neutral carbon fee to mitigate climate change. He is an advocate for open and transparent public discussion of science, policy, and current events. He considers himself a Christian Atheist and is working on a book about the synthesis of science and spirituality for the 21st century. He blogs at www.ethanbodnaruk.com.

Central New York Skeptics (CNY Skeptics) is a community organization dedicated to the promotion of science and reason, the investigation of paranormal and fringe-science claims, and the improvement of standards for science education and critical-thinking skills.

If this is indeed scheduled for January 16, 2018, it may be difficult for most people (apart from those with access to old-fashioned English phone boxes) to attend.

Would CNY Skeptics be willing to re-schedule this for January 16, 2019, to give more people a chance to attend?

I thought I changed the date, if a moderator would like to delete the original post, I will repost it with the correct date.

There's no need to ask a mod to delete the original post. What you should do instead is click the report button on the opening post (i.e. the exclamation point inside a triangle at the bottom left of the post) which will open up a report form. In the report, say that you accidentally got the date wrong and ask a mod to edit the post to change the 2018 to 2019. They will generally be glad to do it.



Oh -- and if you offer a sufficiently large quantity of chocolate as a bribe, and if the mod who reads your report is [name redacted] , she may be willing to do the edit without leaving a last edited by line at the bottom of the post. That way it will look as if you had it right to begin with and I was just imagining things or playing some silly joke when I posted that you had the date wrong.
