July 29 , 8:00-9:15 pm, Great Harbor Yacht Club
Despite overwhelming opposition, Hawaii found a way to set a precedent for the nation mandating 100 percent renewable energy by 2045. Now, four years later, the unexpected results of Hawaii’s implementation toward its clean energy target suggest a profound shift in national politics is coming for the rest of the country.
In his 10th session in the Hawaiian Legislature, Representative Chris Lee currently serves as the Chair of the Committee on Judiciary (JUD). He previously chaired the Committee on Energy and Environmental Protection (EEP), and was a member for the Water and Land Committee (WAL).
Lee, a supporter of addressing climate change, has authored laws making Hawaii the first state to mandate 100 percent renewable energy by 2045, the first state to commit to economy-wide carbon neutrality by 2045, and the first state requiring all public schools and universities to upgrade and become net-zero facilities by 2035.
Rep. Lee will be speaking at Natnucket’s Great Harbor Yacht Club on July 29 from 8-9:15 pm. Admission $25. Tickets on sale now.
