In West Virginia and around the world, global warming and the climate crisis are driving a rapid energy transition to low-carbon-emission energy sources.  How can we secure a fair energy transition — one that provides effective climate solutions, and leaves no one behind?

You can learn more about (and help answer) this important question at this series of webinars on the topic: “Putting Together the Pieces of a Fair Energy Transition – Leaving No One Behind.” 

Three live, audience-interactive programs, each with different expert speakers and panelists, are currently scheduled for 7:00-8:00 PM USET on Tuesday, June 15; Tuesday, July 13; and Tuesday, August 10. Post-program recordings will be available.  We do not share your information. 

This webinar series is sponsored by the West Virginia Center on Climate Change (“WV3C”)partnering with the WVU College of Law Center on Energy and Sustainable Development, and the West Virginia Climate Alliance; and is supported by the Dunn Foundation and by Rafe and Lenore Pomerance.  For more information, contact Tom Rodd; 304-541-4494; 304-265-0018; thomasrodd@wvclimate.org.
