Wednesday at UM: Powering Montana’s Future

Please join us this Wednesday, October 25, 7 p.m. in the UC Theater, when 350 Montana introduces a panel discussion,

“Powering Montana’s Future: Climate Change and our Economy, Policy, and Politics”

with panelists Donovan Power (Power Consulting); Dick Barrett (MT State Senator), Jacqueline Sussman, UM grad student, and John Woodland, 350 Montana co-chair.

350 Montana commissioned two reports this past summer: one on Montana’s transition to renewable energy and the second on the role Northwestern Energy (NWE), Montana’s corporate energy provider, plays in blocking a carbon-free energy system.

The panelists will discuss both of the reports’ conclusions, while also discussing ways Montana can use renewable technologies, storage capacities, conservation techniques and other advances to meet this challenge. The panelists will also discuss what citizens can do to encourage our legislative leaders, decision-makers and energy providers to support our demands for a transition away from fossil fuels and towards a 100 percent renewable energy future.

 

Here are the two reports:

We hope to see you there.

John Woodland, co-chair 350 Montana
