The UCLA Institute for the Environment and Sustainability invites you to the launch of a brand new format for our flagship public program, the Oppenheim Lecture Series. Join leading authorities on energy and the economics of emissions reduction for a dynamic debate on whether California’s bid to shift exclusively to renewable energy is a strategy that the rest of the world should and could adopt in the near term—or whether other energy approaches, such as nuclear, are still needed.
