Transforming Transportation for the 21st Century

Dan Sperling, Founding Director, Institute of Transportation Studies; Board Member, California Air Resources Board

By 2020, the number of cars on the planet will double to two billion. Without big changes to our cars, fuels and personal habits, the carbon footprint from transportation will rise above its current 25 percent of total emissions. Can we break the cycle of "shock and trance?" Join energy expert Sperling as he reveals what is at stake if we refuse to move quickly, and what opportunities exist if we act now.

Time: 5:30 p.m. wine and cheese/networking, 6 p.m. program
