National Climate Seminar: Carbon Pricing and Washington State
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
KC Golden, Senior Adviser, Climate Solutions
On March 1st, tune in with KC Golden, Senior Adviser of Climate Solutions.
"The key here ... is a strong nexus between the problem, the money, and the solutions. If climate policy is understood as real solutions and a just, inclusive transition to clean energy, it can win. If it’s just about paying more for energy (while the green elites zip off to Teslala land), forget it." --KC Golden, Climate Solutions
Golden serves on the boards of 350.org and the US Climate Action Network. He was one of Seattle Magazine's "Power 25" most influential people, and its #1 "Eco-Hero." In 2012, he received the Heinz Award for Public Policy. Gorden earned his Bachelor's Degree at the University of California, Berkeley, and was a Kennedy Fellow at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, where he received a Master's in Public Policy.

This year the series focuses on The Politics & Environment Education Project featuring academic and NGO experts from across the country who will lead a non-partisan discussion on the shift in U.S. environmental dialog from bi-partisan consensus to partisan gridlock. Listeners can watch live or listen to past podcasts here. Past speakers have included thought leaders from 350.org, Sierra Club, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and many more.
