Clean Energy and the Land — The High-Stakes Battle Over Climate Solutions
Friday, April 21 | 9:00 – 10:15 a.m. MT
Confronting the climate crisis will require huge amounts of land and resources — for solar panels, wind turbines, power lines and mines that extract lithium, cobalt and antimony. Already, construction of renewable energy infrastructure is butting up against opposition from rural landowners, wildlife advocates and tribal nations. Where do public lands in Idaho and the West fit into the hunt for critical minerals and the growth of climate-friendly power? How do we phase out fossil fuels while limiting the harm to biodiversity, small-town lifestyles and landscapes sacred to Indigenous peoples?
