All the things we care about tie back to one simple question: Can you turn your lights on in the morning?

Whether it’s cryptocurrency in Iceland, marijuana cultivation in Colorado, or a  small woman-owned business in Ethiopia, the need for cheap, abundant electricity is critical. Across the globe, Power = Power.

But how do we plug in every person on the planet without killing the planet?

This Summit will feature in-depth discussion, debate and analysis by climate scientists, members of Congress, government officials, filmmakers,  educators, and nationally recognized journalists.

We strongly encourage attendance by high school and college students, teachers, small business owners, and anyone who is concerned about the environment, our personal and economic freedom, and our standard of living.

We will kick things off on Friday afternoon, March 11, with a field trip to Craig, Colorado (a 45-minute drive west of Steamboat Springs) for a guided tour of the Trapper Mine and Craig Station power generating plant. Then, back in Steamboat on Friday evening, we will have a screening of “Juice: How Electricity Explains the World,” including remarks by Robert Bryce, film narrator, writer and producer.

Saturday will be a full day of speakers and panels (9am to 5pm), including Dr. Steven Koonin, Undersecretary for Science in the Obama Administration’s Energy Department and author of Unsettled: What Climate Science Tells Us, What It Doesn’t, and Why It Matters,” Dr. Bjorn Lomborg, President of the Copenhagen Consensus Center and author of False Alarm: How Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts the Poor, and Fails to Fix the Planet,” and many others. The summit will conclude on Saturday evening with a dinner and special speaker.

*Special thanks to Robert Bryce, creator of the documentary “Juice,” which will  be screened as part of our Energy and Climate Summit.
