Energy: dirty fossil fuels, renewables, and efficiency
The fossil fuel status quo presents an unsustainable future; it will not last. We must transform our energy infrastructure. This track addresses roadblocks and solutions to a clean, sustainable energy framework. Coal, oil, and natural gas are still the dominant sources of energy for our civilization. A powerful industry surrounds these limited resources. It is important to keep a watchful eye on their activities and raise our voices against irresponsible and unjust practices. We must also encourage energy innovation; with collaboration between business, technology, and policy sectors. Simultaneously, we should work to reduce our energy footprint. Simple habits go a long way and identifying effective incentives is a solid way to affect change.
