How and why we can and must switch from fossil fuels to renewables

If we hope to limit climate change to "a livable level," 80% of the fossil fuel companies' reserves need to be left "in the ground," according to Sandy Polishuk, divestment coordinator with 350PDX. She joins solar design consultant, Jesse Hunter, to discuss the necessity and strategies for shifting from fossil fuels to renewables. They will cover local and global divestment actions; recent developments in wind, solar power & electric vehicles; the potentials and feasibility of switching to clean energy, and what's needed to close the gap.
