Arnold Schwarzenegger to Speak at WEEC 2013

Will Innovation and Green Technologies Save the Global Economy?
World Energy Engineering Congress, Wednesday, September 25th, 2013, Washington Convention Center, Washington, DC
 

From his experience in American politics to his efforts combating climate change, Gov. Schwarzenegger incarnates openness to change and the boldness of innovative solutions. His legacy is a California that is a world leader in renewable energy innovation, technology development and deployment. Gov. Schwarzenegger discusses the need to shift the debate on energy from a singular focus on carbon emission reduction, and instead urgently develop an American energy strategy. He identifies security and the U.S.'s overreliance on foreign oil; the need to address pollution more generally; and the importance of energy productivity, green jobs and technological innovation as the primary objectives of such a strategy.
