powering earth 2050:

Join the conversation on energy futures for California and for the world. There are no easy answers—but the civil discourse this event embodies is a good start on a sustainable path.

The UCLA Institute for the Environment and Sustainability invites you to the launch of a brand new format for our flagship public program, the Oppenheim Lecture Series. Join leading authorities on energy and the economics of emissions reduction for a dynamic debate on whether California’s bid to shift exclusively to renewable energy is a strategy that the rest of the world should and could adopt in the near term—or whether other energy approaches, such as nuclear, are still needed.

The full program live stream is available here and on YouTube
