Location: Radisson Hotel Duluth (Location Map ) conference room
Event: George Erickson presents "Countering Climate Change in Northern MN and Around the World."
Our oceans supply 20% of our protein and 50% of our oxygen, but the excess CO2 the oceans are absorbing is damaging the very organisms that create that oxygen and support the ocean food chain that produces our tuna, halibut, salmon and shellfish. In addition, with demand for electricity increasing every year, energy conservation is increasingly important, but we must also carefully decide how to best create that electricity. Fortunately, all is not lost, but the steps we must take are urgent, costly and unpopular.
With a Power Point presentation that has been viewed by thousands, best-selling author, bush pilot and Iron Range native George Erickson evaluates which means of power production is the safest, most efficient, and the most ecologically benign.
George will advocate the position that, "We must drastically reduce the burning of carbon and increase the production of CO2-free, safe, efficient power."
