Person of the Planet Speaker: Bob Epstein

The Good News and (Maybe) Better News

In October 2017 Person of the Planet sponsored a public talk by Dr. Robert Epstein.  Dr. Epstein presented one of the most popular discussions of the year with many attendees requesting another talk.  Person of the Planet is delighted to announce that event will take place at Arlington Community Church this month.

Bob Epstein’s Talk on Oct. 18, 2018:  California Accomplishments in Addressing Climate Change and the Role of the State in the Coming Decade

Recently California announced the 2016 greenhouse gas emissions inventory.  We achieved our goal of reducing emissions to 1990 levels four years ahead of the 2020 target date.  This talk will look at how that was achieved – what is working and what isn’t. As we plan for a further 40% reduction by 2030, how can that be achieved and what is the role of California in the global context of reducing worldwide emissions in the developing and developed countries.

Robert Epstein, PhD, co-founder, Environmental Entrepreneurs, co-founder and former EVP, Sybase.  Bob Epstein is an entrepreneur and holds a PhD from UC Berkeley in electrical engineering and computer science, specializing in distributed database systems.

He is Chairman of the NRDC (National Resources Defense Council) Action Fund.  Bob has been heavily involved in founding the Berkeley Food Institute that works to catalyze and support transformative change in food systems, to promote diversity, justice resilience, and health from the local to the global.

Bob's knowledge of public policy is extensive and proven with successes.  Come and hear from a subject matter expert about this critical topic.

Can you feel the change of the season?  It is more than the stores selling Christmas items (!), it includes the cool feel of the air, the earlier sunsets, the hope of rain here in Northern California.  I’ll bet you have some memories of previous autumns.  Where were you in 1991 when the October Firestorm swept the hills nearby?  Do you have a favorite Halloween memory?
