Key topics to be addressed: Given the political inertia, is there any serious movement in the provate sector/financial markets that envision a movement away from a fossil fuel economy? What hurdles are renewable technologies facing right now? Are we still waiting for a better solution? Who is leading? (both countries and industries)?. Looking internationally, are there lessons to be learned from Europe and its cap and trade system? Is China taking the lead on low carbon solutions right now?
