The Climate Crisis and the Energy Transition: Perfection Meets Pragmatism
A conversation between two of the nation’s most authoritative experts on energy:
Dr. Ernest J. Moniz and Dr. Robert C. Armstrong
The community is cordially invited to attend this very important event.
Ernest J. Moniz is the 13th United States Secretary of Energy (2013-2017), and the Cecil and Ida Green Professor of Physics and Engineering Systems emeritus at MIT. His broad responsibilities as Secretary included advancing President Obama’s all-of-the-above energy strategy, and promoting American leadership in science and clean energy technology innovation.
Professor Robert C. Armstrong directs the MIT Energy Initiative, an Institute-wide effort at MIT linking science, technology, and policy to transform the world’s energy systems. Armstrong chaired MIT’s The Future of Energy Storage study (2022) and was a member of MIT’s study groups, Future of Solar Energy (2015) and Future of Natural Gas (2011).
The hybrid event will be held in person at First Parish, 7 Harrington Road, Lexington, as well as live-streamed via the First Parish website, fplex.org. Masks are encouraged.
