The 3rd annual Fort Collins Book Festival will be held on October 19th and 20th in Fort Collins, Colorado. Governor Ritter will provide the opening keynote on Saturday, October 20th. This address will focus on the energy transition in America and his book, Powering Forward: What Everyone Should Know about America’s Energy Revolution.
Wind, sunlight, and other sustainable resources are now the fastest growing sources of energy in the U.S. and worldwide. American families are installing power plants on their roofs and entire communities are switching to 100 percent renewable energy. The urgent need to prevent climate change is causing people around the planet to question their reliance on carbon-intensive oil, coal, and natural gas. Author Bill Ritter, Jr., the 41st governor of Colorado and one of America’s key thought leaders on this topic, discusses the forces behind the energy revolution, the new ways we must think about energy, and the future of fossil and renewable fuels.
