Just because we’re dealing with the fast moving crisis called Covid-19 currently, doesn’t mean that we can't also take this moment to think creatively on how we can solve another, much slower moving challenge called climate change.
Solomon Goldstein-Rose is a climate activist and former Massachusetts state representative. In his new book, "The 100% Solution" he breaks down what in his view it will take for society to come up with a complete solution to the problem of climate change, which means achieving net negative emissions by the year 2050. From revolutionizing the transportation and industrial sectors, to Apollo-program level funding initiatives to help get carbon neutral technologies to scale, Solomon believes it's possible, as long as we're willing to be bold, and do what it takes.
Solomon Goldstein-Rose lives in Amherst, MA, which is where I reached him by Skype on March 11th. Listen to the interview above, or subscribe toThe Elephant in Spotify or Apple Podcasts.
