The Climate Economy is Coming! Will you surf it or be crushed?

In 1990 IBM posted its biggest profits ever. Three years later it posted the biggest loss ever in US history.


The world had rapidly shifted from relying on IBM mainframes to Microsoft-powered PCs, transforming a fringe technology into a the platform powering the entire global economy.

Thirty years later, the world is on the cusp of another massive transition as clean technologies get cheaper and better than legacy fossil-fuel based technologies.

So take a few minutes to learn why its imperative for you, your company and country to jump on the clean-economy bandwagon, or get left in the dust.

The video is part of a larger presentation, “The Climate Economy is Coming! Will you surf it or be crushed?” I’ll be giving at Innovate New Albany on Friday, January 19th at 11:30. The talk is free and even comes with lunch for all attendees, so click the REGISTRATION link to get a spot before it’s sold out!

Over the course of 45 minutes, I’ll cover:

  • Why the competition between fossil fuels is like the battle between IBM/Mainframes and Microsoft/PCs in the 1990s.
  • The dangers of investing in legacy dirty technologies that will quickly be non-competitive assets weighing down your business.
  • Why China’s clean-economy investments positions it to dominate the future global economic order – and put America’s automotive and energy industry at risk.
  • Why the regressive fossil-fuel driven climate-change tax is set to skyrocket and drive inflation higher.
  • What California gets right, and what Ohio needs to do to compete.
  • How to integrate sustainability into your product development and corporate strategy
  • Why it’s critical that the Columbus area and Ohio create comprehensive strategies so that we can surf the transition as opposed to being crushed by it.
  • And much, much more.
