Ending the Fossil Fuel Era: Lecture by Dr. Pamela Martin
At a time when South Carolina, our region, and the US turn its attention to ways to secure our future and our energy supply, Pamela Martin, Professor of Politics and International Relations at Coastal Carolina University discusses her new edited volume on Ending the Fossil Fuel Era. Rather than discussing plans to limit carbon, this book takes a look at whether we can keep that carbon in the ground.
Six case studies reveal how individuals, groups, communities, and an entire country have taken first steps out of the fossil fuel era, with experiments that range from leaving oil under the Amazon to ending mountaintop removal in Appalachia. Martin will talk about these cases, their successes and failures, and what we can learn from them for our region and our country.
