“Health of People”⁠— Kammen Contributes Chapter in Open-Access, Collaborative Book

“Health of People, Health of Planet and Our Responsibility” is a recently published, fully open-access book that came out of discussions at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences with the Pope and members of the joint Pontifical Academies of Science and Social Science. ERG Professor Dan Kammen contributed his own chapter, “Defeating energy poverty”, which is included in a section on taking action from a scientific basis.

“It was one of the last international volumes that Stephen Hawking endorsed before his passing, and has chapters from a range of tremendously creative individuals, including Governor Jerry Brown, Nobel Laureate Yuan Lee, Lise Van Susteren, Werner Arber, Peter Raven, and others. Many of the essays you will find here on energy, water, poverty, and health echo even more loudly under the COVID-19 pandemic,” Kammen states.
