Al Weinrub helps the Local Clean Energy Alliance, a Bay Area-based organization, bring local renewable energy resources into communities in a beneficial way. The alliance’s goal is to harness energy sources locally as a means of equitable wealth for urban communities and to help communities realize that not all renewable energy is created equal.
“Climate justice is the preeminent issue of our time,” Weinrub states. “There is a very strong inequality in the notion of what’s happening with the climate. We don’t look at greenhouse gas reductions as a technical thing. We have to deal with all of the social inequalities if we’re ever going to survive.”
