Clean Energy with J. Drake Hamilton

Fresh Energy
Fresh Energy's Science Policy Director

Our high energy lifestyles and high-speed, high-tech 21st century economy still rely, in great part, on 19th century fuels - coal, oil and natural gas.  While we still have abundant sources of those fuels, they aren't renewable and require vast infrastructures of pipelines, power lines, ships, rain and trucks to deliver, refine and distribute.  We hear about clean energy, but is it working in our state? 

Fresh Energy is a MN based non-profit that has been working for over 20 years to shape our clean energy future.  J. Drake Hamilton talked with us about the future of energy. 

She will be the keynote speaker at the11th annual Back to Basics at Pine River-Backus school on Saturday February 11th.
