Time & Location
About the Event
The Climate Cocktail Club is launching its Bay Area presence on January 9, 2020, and we’re excited to have Greg Dalton, host of Climate One, as our kickoff speaker.
The event, Talking 2020 Elections and Climate With Climate One's Greg Dalton, will be held at Manny’s in the Mission from 6-8 PM and will be a “fireside chat” format consisting of casual audience Q&A immediately following Greg’s remarks. Food and one free drink provided. Tickets are $20 and must be purchased online prior to the event.
Topics of discussion will include:
- Get to know Greg: His background and why he started Climate One
- How Greg sees Climate One playing a role in the broader (local, national, international) climate discussion
- Forecast for the 2020 election, from a climate lens:
- How do we get people to care about climate when going to the polls?
- California vs. the U.S
- His thoughts on the best presidential candidate to tackle climate change
- Carbon tax vs. cap and trade vs. Green New Deal and what Greg thinks has the most realistic chance of becoming law, based on conversations he’s had.
Greg Dalton founded Climate One at The Commonwealth Club in 2007 after traveling to the Russian Arctic on a global warming symposium with climate scientists and journalists. Today, he and his team produce a weekly radio show that airs on public stations in California and around the country in addition to a weekly podcast. Climate One is the only regular talk show that engages high-level leaders from business, politics, advocacy and academic circles in a conversation about building sustainable economies, resilient communities and a healthier future. Past guests include science icon Jane Goodall, music legend Graham Nash, former Vice President Al Gore, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler, Tea Party co-founder Debbie Dooley, Bill Nye, Google Chairman Eric Schmidt, Chevron CEO Dave O’Reilly, Ford Motor Co.
