Despite Presidential aspirations to renege on the Paris Accord, business as usual will result in the US meeting its obligations to that agreement. So, do bombastic pronouncements matter? In one sense, no. But in another, what really matters is that hundreds of businesses, cities and other organizations have pledged “We’re Still In.” Interestingly, leadership is shifting from the US federal government to cities, states, businesses, NGO’s and citizens. And this is a good thing, because these are the entities that have to do the real work of creating a world of 100% renewable energy, and an economy in service to life.
Hunter Lovins, whose work spans from the first COPs through Paris, to helping communities, companies and countries implement a regenerative economy, will discuss why the Paris Accord matters, what is happening about it, why it doesn’t go nearly far enough, and why the coalition now forming to preserve it will get the work done to solve the climate crisis at a profit.
