Video of the Week: Inovative Soloutions to Climate Change--Technologies and Practices

There are many things that i could say to prompt you to watch this video of the week, however i will leave it at this: Amory Lovins from the Rocky Mountian Institute is one of the speakers.

If you don't know Amory then you should watch this, then when he is next mentioned you won't feel so rediculous in your ignorance of this legend. If you do know Amory then you probably won't read this far as you will be watching his talk.

This is the third of the Sino-US dialogues from the unversity of Berkeley that i have chosen as a video of the week.

"This panel argues the merits of a wide range of emerging technologies for reducing CO2 emissions from energy use, including energy efficiency, renewable energy, and nuclear power, and their prospects in China and the U.S. The China-U.S. Climate Change Forum was organized by the Berkeley China Initiative, which is forging closer ties between U.C. Berkeley and China by bringing together key experts on important international and bilateral issues. Growing concern over climate change makes this topic an obvious choice for the first of this series of annual events. This panel will highlight the mutual vulnerability of China and the U.S. to climate change, and the indispensable role of scientific research in understanding the problem and developing solutions. The Forum is co-sponsored by Peking University's College of Environmental Sciences and UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism, International and Area Studies, Institute of East Asian Studies, Center for Chinese Studies, Energy and Resources Group, and Berkeley Institute of the Environment. Financial sponsors include the Richard and Rhoda Goldman Fund, the Energy Foundation, and the Hewlett Foundation."
