The Most Impactful Sessions on Topics that Will Move the Needle

The Bedford 2020 Climate Action Summit will feature national leaders in the fight against Climate Change as Keynote Speakers and in breakout sessions. Sessions will focus on implementing and creating powerful Climate solutions. Click here for the Press Release

How Do We Get to 100% Renewable Energy?

A rapid transition to 100% renewable energy is critical to combatting climate change. We now have the power to make our clean energy future a reality. Your house can be a power plant, your car a battery and your community a source for local renewable energy. This session will explore how we as individuals and communities can control the prices, sources and usage of our own power. Topics will include community solar, rooftop solar, community choice aggregated energy purchases, electric vehicles, battery storage, innovations in demand response and more.

Locally Generated Renewables:
Take Charge

You have the power to bring local renewable energy to our homes and our communities. Programs like Solarize, Community Solar, Geothermal and Demand Response put you — the consumer — in charge of both the supply and usage of energy. This panel of renewable energy experts and program leaders will present solutions, new programs, and best practices in the region to give you the tools to bring local renewable energy home.

Getting Environmentalists to Vote: Solving the Environmental Voter Turnout Problem

Environmentalists aren’t voting as much as they ought to. Getting environmentalists to vote  will shift the agenda and progress on environmental issues. Recent advances offer hope for the future. Big data and predictive modeling have revolutionized how modern political campaigns identify and communicate with voters. Meanwhile, a new generation of behavioral scientists have changed our understanding of why and how people decide to vote. These advances present some counter-intuitive and exciting discoveries, while also suggesting both good and bad news for the environmental movement. With fresh data from recent elections, polls, and predictive models, this session will discuss how modern political campaigns identify and mobilize voters, how that impacts environmental policy at the local, state, and federal level, and some easy ways for you to help turn environmentalists into better voters.

Communicating about Climate Change

How can we inspire the world to move the needle on Climate Change? We must capture hearts and minds and make solutions deeply personal. Leading-edge experts will explore the power of storytelling and other communication techniques that have been effective in moving individuals to action. The panel will also showcase creative ideas for messaging that will empower everyone seeking to mobilize the public.

Carbon Tax: What Is It?
Why Should I Care? What Can I Do?

Is placing a tax on carbon pollution a silver-bullet solution to fighting Climate Change? This session will explain the concept of a carbon tax; examine the pros and cons; explore the major hurdles to enacting a carbon tax; and give participants specific steps they can take to support a NY State tax on carbon pollution.

Food and Fumes

What we eat has an enormous impact on climate change — in fact, the meat industry generates one fifth of all greenhouse gas emissions.  If each person ate one less hamburger per week, it would be the emissions equivalent of taking your car off the road for 320 miles. Hear how a small shift toward plant-based foods has an outsized impact on our carbon emissions and learn about a community-wide Meatless Monday campaign to eat better and more sustainably.

Soil Regeneration and
Natural Climate Solutions:
Storing CO2 While Feeding Us
and Breathing Better

Soil and forestry could be the key to climate health.  What if forestry management and agriculture production shifted to where carbon sequestration and soil health were valued?  According to scientists, we can reduce carbon emissions, sequester carbon in forests and the soil, and capture 100% of the planet’s current annual CO2 emissions using mother nature.  In this session, learn about forestry and agricultural methods that focus on carbon sequestration and soil health that can feed the world, address climate change and provide clean air and water.

Reducing Food Waste
to Cool our Planet

America sends 52 million tons of food to its landfills each year! Food that is wasted is heating up the planet, yet people who need food are not getting it. This panel will explore ways we can promote better food policies to reduce waste and how individuals can divert food waste to feed the hungry, regenerate our soil or be productively re-purposed.

Bringing Clean Energy Home: Community Choice Aggregation

Take control of your community’s electric supply with Community Choice Aggregation (CCA). The opportunity to choose and bargain for your community’s electricity supply is a game changer. CCA empowers your community to demand renewable energy, negotiate fixed pricing, reduce electricity bills, increase resiliency, and create a market for local renewable energy. This session will feature forward-thinking municipal leaders, energy experts and climate change activists who will showcase the benefits of CCA, current and emerging CCA models, and provide the tools you need for demanding CCA in your own community.

Pollinator-Friendly Solar

This “big idea” will advance renewable energy, protect pollinators (bees, birds and more), and support local agriculture. Adding pollinator friendly native plants under and around ground mounted solar arrays has many benefits: reduces O&M costs for solar developers; increases community support for solar; protects pollinators; and increases productivity of adjacent farmland. Panelists, including beekeepers, farmers, native plant experts, and solar developers, will explore obstacles, challenges, and why this is an amazing opportunity for NY state.

Electric Vehicles: On the Road
to Our Clean Energy Future

An EV is not just a car. It is the key to transforming our electric grid and shifting to 100% renewable energy. From clean transportation to battery storage to resiliency, EVs lay the groundwork for a clean energy economy. This session will explore challenges and opportunities to make EVs universal. Come hear from policy makers, clean energy entrepreneurs, advocates, and business leaders about incentives, infrastructure, advocacy, and how, by supporting EVs, we will drive into a clean energy future.

David Gelber

Creator and Executive Producer,
“Years of Living Dangerously”

David Gelber is the creator and executive producer of “Years of Living Dangerously” the award-winning television series on climate changes. When asked why he got involved in this project Gelber replied, “I covered about ten war zones in my years at 60 Minutes, but this story, global warming, is just as dramatic — and more important — than any of them. We’ve spent three years figuring out how to tell the story in ways that are absolutely riveting — and with the same editorial integrity that guid­ed us at 60 Minutes. I’ll bet you won’t see anything on TV this year that’s more entertaining, more informative and more important than ‘Years of Living Dangerously.’ ”

David Gelber served as Ed Bradley’s producer at 60 Minutes for 25 years, during which he won every major journalism award, including a Peabody, two DuPont Awards and eight Emmy Awards.

During the nineties, Gelber was executive producer of Peter Jennings Reporting at ABC News. He spent two winters in Sarajevo producing documentaries on the Bosnian Conflict. He returned to CBS News in 1996 to head the Ed Bradley Unit. Most recently, a story he did with Scott Pelley on medical charlatans who peddle bogus stem cell therapy to patients dying of ALS won the Emmy for Best Investigative Story of 2010 by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

A visionary, agile leader with an uncon­ventional career arc, David has repeatedly demonstrated his ability to adapt, respond

to new challenges, solve complex problems and navigate crisis situations during pivotal points of an organization’s evolution.

David excels at assembling high-caliber, cross-disciplinary leadership teams, developing efficient, innovative organizations, raising funds — and communicating a compelling brand story, a defining strength cultivated early in his career at The Mercury News where he earned a Pulitzer Prize and pro­gressed up the leadership ranks to Execu­tive Editor.
