LBJ School – 100% Renewable: How Keeping Score Incentivizes Achievement
Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley once said “for our prosperity, for our current and future generations, and for the health of our State, which is so vulnerable to rising sea levels, we must take action on climate change now – not later. Maryland can’t afford to be left behind. We must commit to taking the actions necessary to protect our environment, our economy, and our citizens.”
The next few decades will welcome global energy transformations; there will be a major shift from fossil fuel dependence to primarily renewable sources like solar and wind. Driven by the need to avert the catastrophic consequences of the climate crisis and the depletion of easily accessible oil, coal, and natural gas, this transformation will result in a major shift in how we live. Former Governor of Maryland Martin O’Malley joins the LBJ Washington Center to discuss what a 100% renewable future looks like, how we get there, and what challenges we will face in this transition.
