Biden's election will have major impacts on the rate of change of the future US energy mix and how fast the US moves toward a CO2 free future. Join NCAC for a moderated discussion with Katherine Hamilton to analyze the outcome for President, Senate, and House from the viewpoint of domestic energy policy. Will the US be able to continue global energy dominance in oil, gas and coal? Can Biden accelerate $2 trillion of investment for clean energy and jobs.
