Jeffrey Sachs is coming Houston May 27th for a presentation and discussion on

The Future of Global Energy and Sustainable Development

Dr. Jeffrey Sachs"Energy lies at the heart of the world’s sustainability challenge. On the one hand, abundant, accessible, low-cost energy is vital for economic prosperity. On the other hand, the world’s pattern of energy use, based on fossil fuels, threatens massive future climate change with devastating potential consequences. The greatest sustainability challenge, therefore, is to meet the energy needs of a growing world economy while moving to a safer pattern of energy use."
