Did you know that 247Solar CEO Brice Anderson was instrumental in making Earth Day the annual, global event it is today? It’s true.

THIS MONTH’S FEATURE:
A ROADMAP FOR DELIVERING ON CLIMATE CHANGE COMMITMENTS
Now comes the hard part
Travelers will tell you that a good map is essential to any journey. Nowhere is this truer than with the path to fulfillment of President Joe Biden’s pledge to cut economywide carbon emissions in the U.S. in half by 2030. Thanks to a new report by climate think tank Energy Innovations – brought to our attention by Canary Media — at least a map exists.
BIDEN, EARTH WEEK AND CLIMATE TECH
President Joe Biden chose Earth Day to announce a variety of commitments and programs on behalf of the United States, linked to America’s new 2030 target of a 50 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from a 2005 baseline aligned with the Paris Agreement. At each step, Biden took care to associate these imperatives with equitable job creation and the opportunity to make money. Others reinforced this theme during the conference, as described in an excellent summary of the event by Heather Clancy at GreenBiz.
