About a third of global warming comes from the methane gas we burn to heat our water, warm our homes, and cook our food. We all know methane is a highly flammable safety hazard – and it creates indoor air pollution when burned. The solution? Switch to Clean Energy! We can use the renewable electricity now flowing through our wires to provide the energy we need.
Come learn how and why “The Switch is On.” Panama Bartholomy, head of the Building Decarbonization Coalition, will share his strategy for how our culture can make the shift from from the toxic methane gas that’s often created by a fracking process. And he’ll offer a vision of thousands of new, well-paying jobs. Gunn High School students, Katie Rueff and Saman de Silva, will discuss practical steps in making the switch: appliances, costs, rebates, and finding an installer. Sally Mentzer, electric cooking enthusiast, will offer a tasty demonstration of electric induction cooking.
