Daniel Esty: 40 Big Ideas for a Sustainable Future

Can hip-hop help bridge the divide between communities of color and environmentalism? Are strong regulations making fracking safer and cleaner? Environmentalists probably nod at the first question and bristle at the second. But tackling climate means taking everyone outside of their comfort zone. 

In the new book A Better Planet: 40 Big Ideas for a Sustainable Future, Daniel Esty showcases innovative ideas from leaders in industry, government, business and land management. It touches on some solutions you have heard of, and some you haven’t. Andy Karsner has advanced energy innovation as assistant secretary of energy under President George W. Bush. 

Join us for a conversation with Daniel Esty, professor of environmental law and policy at Yale Law School, and Andy Karsner, energy expert and managing partner at Emerson Collective.
