Thomas Van Dyck – Traction: The Clean Energy Revolution | Bioneers 2017
The exponential market growth of clean energy and the concurrent decline of fossil fuels foretell a radically different energy future. It’s much closer than most people realize. Thomas Van Dyck, acclaimed socially responsible investment pathfinder and activist co-founder of the Divest-Invest movement, shows how the clean energy transformation is gaining inexorable momentum with big business and governments worldwide. While technological advances have already made clean energy cost-competitive, Thomas shows how we can accelerate the transition and overcome the desperate last stand of the fossil fuel political-industrial complex.
