Description

To adequately address climate change, we need to get to zero carbon as fast as possible. We don't know how to create zero-carbon liquid fuels at a large scale. But we do know how to create zero-carbon electricity. It follows that, to really tackle climate change, we need to a) decarbonize the electricity grid, and b) move as much energy use as possible onto the grid. In other words: electrify everything! We'll discuss some of the unique challenges and opportunities of this approach.

David Roberts has been a journalist covering clean energy politics for more than 12 years. He began his career at Grist.org; now he writes for Vox.com. He lives in Seattle with his wife and two teen boys.
