- David Takacs UC Hastings

“The greatest impact of Climate One is that it is a continuing conversation at a very high level. It’s not just a sound bite. It’s not just a piece on NPR that might be excellent, but it’s just about climate change, and it’s just for a few seconds or a few minutes. It’s a continuing discussion and dialogue.” - Will Travis San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission

- Greg on his Alaska 2011 trip with the Commonwealth Club

In 2007 I had the privilege of leading a group of Commonwealth Club members to the Arctic Circle aboard a Russian icebreaker. For nearly two weeks we explored Siberia and the Bering Sea and heard daily lectures from prominent journalists and climate scientists. Witnessing firsthand the signs of a disrupted climate — melting tundra, shrinking sea ice, and butterflies further north than normal — changed my life. When we returned, Commonwealth Club CEO Dr. Gloria Duffy and I created Climate One, the sustainability initiative at The Club. Today Climate One is a thriving leadership dialogue on energy, economy and the environment. We produce the only regular public radio and TV show on a broad range of climate issues with senior leaders from business, government, and civil society. More than 1 million people heard our conversations on the radio in 2011. Nearly 5,000 people attended 40 events featuring over 100 experts. Climate One is about all of us. Thank you for being a vital part of it.
