Energy Policy Update in December

Can we achieve a more sustainable energy future? Are we making progress toward a more sustainable energy future?

A sense of urgency grows almost daily as business leaders and politicos worldwide meet and discuss energy policies and climate change. Pope Francis's encyclical brought worldwide attention to the issues. An Energy Policy Follow-Up prepared by The Jefferson County League of Women Voters addresses several evolving signs of hope which will be examined at the League's six unit meetings Dec. 8-10.

Technological innovations -- such as using carbon dioxide to create energy in geothermal plants -- are picking up steam. New batteries for storing and transmitting energy are breezing along. And that's just the beginning.

In January, the Book Club will be back! Orville Schell and John Delury's influential Wealth and Power: China's Long March to the 21st Century will be discussed at the book club meetings during January and February. The authors help us understand China today and in the future by their unique approach: studying the evolution of Chinese thought through 11 writers and leaders from the 1790s to current days. We'll learn how the first five of these thinkers pushed China forward in our January meetings:
Wednesday, January 20 from 1 to 3 p.m.
OR at a second meeting Saturday morning, January 23 from 9:30 to 11:30.
We'll investigate the remaining six thought leaders during our meetings in February on the third Wednesday and Saturday.
Bring a friend and don't miss the opportunity to learn more about this important topic through the insights given us in this stunning book.
Call Lynne at 303-985-5128 for more information about the book club and these meetings.
