CANCELLED - Author Reading: Solomon Goldstein-Rose

UPDATE 03/11/20: Unfortunately, Solomon Goldstein-Rose will be unable to join us on Monday, March 30th.

Solomon Goldstein-Rose will discuss his book The 100% Solution: A Plan for Solving Climate Change on Monday, March 30th at 7 pm.

The world must reach negative greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 to avoid the most catastrophic effects of climate change. Yet no single plan has addressed the full scope of the problem--until now.

In The 100% Solution, Solomon Goldstein-Rose, a leading millennial climate activist and a former Massachusetts state representative, makes clear what needs to happen to hit the 2050 target: the manufacturing booms we must spur, the moonshot projects we must fund, the amount of CO2 we'll have to sequester from the atmosphere, and much more. Most importantly, he shows us the more prosperous and equitable world we can build by uniting the efforts of activists, industries, governments, scientists, and voters to get the job done. This is the guide we've been waiting for. As calls for a WWII-scale mobilization intensify--especially among youth activists--this fully illustrated, action-oriented book arms us with specific demands, sets the stakes for what our leaders must achieve, and proves that with this level of comprehensive thinking we can still take back our future.

Solomon Goldstein-Rose has been a climate activist since age 11. His education in engineering and public policy gave him a unique perspective on the intersection of what physically has to happen to solve climate change and what approaches might actually make it happen. After interning in the Obama White House and in Congress during college, Solomon ran for the Massachusetts state legislature at age 22 and got elected on a platform focused on climate change. During his term he passed several small energy and education policies and created local initiatives for civic education and engagement. In 2018 he canceled his campaign for re-election so he could work full-time on climate change at the national and global levels. The 100% Solution framework is a product of his political experiences, numerous meetings with technical experts and activists, and intensive research and analysis. Solomon is also passionate about education policy and election system reform. He lives in Amherst, MA, and makes time for hiking and directing children’s theater.
