North Carolina IPL Hosts Katharine Hayhoe to Discuss the Future of Energy in Charlotte

By path2positive

Katharine Hayhoe remains a prominent voice in the climate and creation care conversation. Her prolific work as a climate scientist enables her to not only lead on solutions but to educate people about climate change in a way that is digestible and comprehensible for the everyday person. Any given week, you may find her speaking to crowds across the U.S., illuminating the abstraction of climate change and motivating people of faith to care for God's creation. 

On April 4, 2016, Blessed Tomorrow's partner organization, North Carolina Interfaith Power and Light, along with Clean Air Carolina, Medical Advocates for Healthy Air, and Union of Concerned Scientists, will host Hayhoe and former CEO of Duke Energy and Lighting the World: Transforming our Energy Future by Bringing Electricity to Everyone, Jim Rogers, for a discussion on the current state of the energy sector.

Considering the rollercoaster of issues that North Carolina has experienced in the past year concerning energy regulations, this topic is of particular importance to have in the beautiful city of Charlotte. Get caught up on what has been happening with energy issues in the Tar Hill State and how faith leaders are leading the charge for solar and wind power via the links below.
