Dallas Group Attempts to ‘Reinvent Fire’
The Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture’s (DIHC) Environmental Forum will collaborate with the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) for new initiative, Reinventing Fire, from 6 to 9 p.m., April 23, which aims at mapping and driving the business-led transition from fossil fuels to efficiency and renewable energy by 2050. RMI president and CEO Michael Potts will give the keynote address, followed by a panel discussion with Dallas environmentalists and thought leaders. A reception will be held at 5:30 p.m.
Reinventing Fire offers actionable solutions for four energy-intensive sectors of the economy: transportation, buildings, industry and electricity. Built upon 30 years of RMI research and work in the field, Reinventing Fire intends to outline running a 158 percent bigger United States economy by 2050 without oil, coal or nuclear energy. RMI has published a book, Reinventing Fire: Bold Business Solutions for the New Energy Era, which unfolds its new initiative for navigating the United States economy through the end of the fossil-fuel era.
Sponsors for the event include D Magazine, White Rock Lake Weekly, Natural Awakenings and EarthPeople.
Cost is $10/30/40. The Dallas Institute is located at 2719 Routh St., Dallas. For more information, call 214-871-2440 or visit DallasInstitute.org.
