I am also very much looking forward to the second weekend in October when Oberlin will host a landmark environmental conference, “After Fossil Fuels: The Next Economy.” The conference will bring together some of the most innovative and influential thinkers in the world with key elected officials who have a solid and active track record on climate change issues.
