Moderated by State of California Air Resources Board's Mary Nichols and featuring CA District 10 Senator Bob Wieckowski, Berkshire Hathaway Energy Renewables' Jonathan Weisgall & Bloomberg NEF's Logan Goldie-Scot

As the price of clean #renewable #energy continues to fall and the futures market makes stranded assets of oil rigs, what is the impact of federal politics on the forward trajectory of the #greeneconomy? To what extent have #Trump's efforts to end California’s emissions waiver or cap-and-trade program impacted markets? This plenary panel will explore the conflicting political and market forces driving policy and economics of #climatechange at the local, state, and federal levels with a panel of leaders in industry, government, and politics.
