Does Racism Make You Sick?

Fukushima has heated up the debate on the transition to renewable energy. Is green energy the answer to global warming, energy independence, and the prevention of Fukushima-like disasters? If so, will the switch kill jobs and raise taxes? Or will renewable energy create a green recovery? What is the bottom line?
On September 23 and 24, leading U.S. & E.U. government officials, geoscientists, policy analysts, politicians, business leaders and academics will join in New York to discuss how transitioning to renewable energy will affect the fragile U.S. and global economies. Panels will focus on the future of nuclear power, the reality behind green jobs, the practicality of new technologies, and the tensions between developed and developing countries.
Participants include Ottmar Edenhofer of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), James Hansen from the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, Peter Schlosser from the Earth Institute at Columbia, Dr. Runge-Metzger from the European Commission, and a member of the German parliament.
