Professor Jacobson is an distinguished author, professor of civil and environmental engineering and Director of the Atmosphere/Energy Program at Stanford University.  Jacobson’s central message for addressing 21st Century energy policy and an accelerating global climate crisis is:

“We do not need miracle technologies to solve these problems. By electrifying all energy sectors; producing electricity from clean, renewable sources; creating heat, cold, and hydrogen from such electricity; storing electricity, heat, cold and the hydrogen; expanding transmission; and shifting the time of some electricity use, we can create safe, cheap, and reliable energy everywhere.”
