Dr. Richard Elsley: Putting a Price on Carbon-Based Fuels

Dr. Helen Cox: Helping Your Government Act

Burning fossil fuels (coal, petroleum and natural gas) releases Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gasses that trap the Sun’s heat, warming the Earth.  This harms our health, our economy and our national security.

The solution is to gradually switch to sustainable, renewable energy.

We can do this by gradually making renewable energy cheaper than carbon-based energy. This will strengthen our economy, improve national security and leave our grandchildren with a healthier planet.

Dr. Richard Elsley, aka Dr. Discovery, is Chair of the Conejo Valley Chapter of Citizens Climate Lobby. He is a (retired) research scientist who shares the excitement of science with school children and the general public.

Dr. Helen Cox is the Sustainability Division Manager of the City of Thousand Oaks. Previously she was Director of the Institute for Sustainability and Professor of Geography at Cal State Northridge.
