Upcoming Programs in 2023

Mark Farmer, A carbon-free energy economy
representing the nonprofit Citizens Climate Lobby

As the world navigates the transition away from an energy economy dominated by fossil fuels it has raised questions about the required upscaling of carbon neutral energy sources and subsequent reduction in energy needs that will be required.

As a State that has no fossil fuel resources yet has abundant wind and solar potential, Georgia is ideally positioned to meet this challenge. Furthermore, with the recent investment in plants to manufacture electric vehicles, Georgia stands ready to become an international leader in both clean energy production and energy efficient transportation.

This presentation will highlight some of the ongoing and future advancements in building a carbon-free energy economy and how these projects can benefit the people of Georgia.

Mark Warren, Design in Nature

Nature has a quiet, invisible force always pushing plants and animals toward success. We will have a look at both the botanical and animal sides of this, with our emphasis on native plants. What we see in our lifetime is the present version of each particular species' state of success, and it is worthwhile to remember two things about this phenomenon:

  • What you see before you is necessarily a view of what has proved to be successful up to now.
  • But the process is still ongoing. The force never sleeps.
