Weaver and Miner to Speak on Sustainable Energy

Art Weaver and Dan Miner will be the speakers for the plenary session, Saturday, August 8, 9:45 am — 11:00 am, on the solar stage on the Alfred University Campus Green, Alfred, NY. Art will speak about "Renewable Energy, the Audacity of Hope, the Reality of Change." Dan Miner will speak about how to create a post-carbon economy. Carl Lundgren's musical performances will open and close the program.

Art Weaver is President of Renovus Energy, a renewable energy systems design and installation company in Ithaca, NY. Prior to founding Renovus Energy, Art was a staff scientist at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron, conducting research in x-ray biophysics and proteomics. The accelerating pace of environmental degradation and social upheaval caused by increasing global population, in conjunction with a diminishing global petroleum resource, motivated Art to establish Renovus Energy.

Dan Miner is the chair of the Sierra Club NYC Group, and founded its Beyond Oil NYC campaign. He is the organizer of the Peak Oil NYC Meetup, the NYC affiliate of Post Carbon Institute. Dan, an attorney, is Senior Vice President of the Long Island City Business Development Corporation.

Carl Lundgren is the Chair of the Bronx County Green Party and a member of the best (and possibly the only) country band in the Bronx, Troy Willy.
