CAMPAIGN: Sea Change Radio Sustainability Innovators

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

Recently, in response to the 45th president’s shameful mishandling of the incidents in Charlottesville, Virgina, UC Berkeley Energy Professor Daniel Kammen resigned as a State Dept.  Science Envoy. His resignation letter picked up national attention — in part because the first letter of each paragraph spelled out the word “IMPEACH.” This week on Sea Change Radio, we hear from Prof. Kammen, learn more about his role of special envoy, how it changed under the current administration, and some of the reasons why he felt the need to leave the post. Then, we reach back to our 2015 discussion with Prof. Kammen and hear about the strides that are being made to provide electricity to the 20% of the world’s population that doesn’t currently have access to it.
