In a talk this Saturday at the Glendale Library, JPL scientist and Transition Pasadena member Robert Haw will discuss how we can afford a clean-energy transition and pay ourselves at the same time. Using common rather than scientific language, he will illustrate some current manifestations of climate change and explain the science behind them. He will also show how a revenue-neutral extraction fee on carbon-based energy sources can make transitioning to a clean-energy economy affordable and help create many new jobs and boost GDP.
A physicist and graduate of Stanford University, Haw is an interplanetary navigation engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He is currently working on a project called SMAP that uses an Earth-orbiting spacecraft to map soil moisture levels around the planet. In 2012, he co-founded the Pasadena Foothills chapter of the Citizens Climate Lobby, an organization working to create the political will for a livable planet.
