Tom Hayden – Building Green Blocs and Justice | Bioneers
As one of the nation’s greatest change-makers, former California State Senator Tom Hayden will describe the political evolution of California’s pace-setting clean energy economy as a model for a Green Bloc of states. Nationally and globally, California is attempting to survive climate change and build a 100% renewable energy future without nuclear power. This requires a movement that takes the road of justice, serves the needs of communities of color and labor, and realigns the political parties away from the funding and influence of the fossil fuel industry. Introduction by Bioneers Co-Founder and President, Kenny Ausubel.
Tom’s original speech was given at the 2014 California Climate Leadership Summit. You can watch all the talks from the summit here: https://bioneers.org/climateleadership/.
