Is green energy the answer to global warming, energy independence, and the prevention of Fukushima-like nuclear disasters? If so, will the switch kill jobs and raise taxes? Or will renewable energy create a green recovery?
Economists will join leading U.S. & E.U. government officials, geoscientists, policy analysts, and business leaders to discuss how transitioning to renewable energy will affect the fragile U.S. and global economies.
