Event @ the World Affairs Council, 2/6
What: “China: Forcing the World to Rethink Its Economic Future"
Who: Lester R. Brown, President and founder of the Earth Policy Institute; founder of the Worldwatch Institute; and author of more than 50 books and papers including Plan B 2.0 and Who Will Feed China?
Event: Convincing new evidence from China shows that its existing fossil-fuel-based, automobile-centered, throwaway economy cannot sustain progress much longer. Lester Brown will look at both China's current consumption of basic resources, which now exceeds that of the U.S., and at China's future consumption in 2031 when its income is projected to reach that of the U.S. today. Dr. Brown will discuss ways to restructure the global economy so that it can sustain economic progress through renewable energy, the reuse and recycling of materials, and a diverse transport system.
When: Monday, February 6; check-in: 5:30 PM, program: 6:00 PM
Where: World Affairs Council, 312 Sutter St., 2nd Floor Conference Room, San Francisco
