Planet Texas 2050
with Michael Webber, ATI Clean Energy Incubator
The UT Austin Environmental Science Institute's "Hot Science - Cool Talks" series will host a special evening on Wednesday, November 29 at the Paramount Theater in Austin. Texas is a demographic and climatic hot spot. In the 21st century, our region is projected to undergo a doubling of its population and a shift to a more drought-prone climate. This poses synergistic challenges for our state's resources, economy, cities, and public health. Planet Texas 2050 will be a lively discussion of Texas’s challenges and potential solutions by leading experts in their fields. Featured presenters will include urban revitalization strategy consultant Majora Carter; atmospheric scientist Dr. Katharine Hayhoe; and Dr. Michael Webber of the Austin Technology Incubator's Clean Energy Incubator. The evening will be moderated by Evan Smith of the Texas Tribune, and live music will be provided by Guy Forsyth. Doors at 7:00 PM, show at 8:00 PM on Wednesday, November 29 at the Paramount Theater, 713 Congress Avenue, Austin, TX 78701.
