WHYY is hosting a panel discussion on October 25 on The Politics of Pennsylvania’s Energy Future at its studio 150 North 6th Street in Philadelphia from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
According to WHYY, Pennsylvania in many ways exemplifies what is happening in energy production across the country-- with a dying coal industry, a growing natural gas industry and a sputtering renewable industry.
With the Clean Power Plan in flux, and the call for a “clean energy revolution,” where does Pennsylvania’s future in energy production and consumption stand?
In this election season, every difference in policy between the Republican and Democratic presidential candidates has polarized voters. Energy, environment and climate change are a part of that division.
What would be at stake with a Donald Trump or a Hillary Clinton presidency?
WHYY Reporter Susan Phillips will moderate a panel examining perspectives on alternative energy, natural gas, nuclear, and coal, through a national and a regional lens.
The panelists include--
-- Christina Simeone, Director of Policy and External Affairs at Kleinman Center for Energy Policy at the University of Pennsylvania;
-- John Quigley, Senior Fellow at Kleinman Center for Energy Policy at the University of Pennsylvania; and
-- Eric Orts, Faculty Director of the Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership at the Wharton School.Click Here to register or for more information.
