Shifting to a Green Economy (Geoff York)

Geoff York, representing organizations like Polar Bears International (PBI), recognizes the importance of promoting renewable energy and the shift to electric vehicles. While some NGOs lobby and invest in renewable energy, PBI’s approach is more science and outreach-oriented. PBI collaborates with zoos and aquariums to reach millions of people and influence policymakers indirectly through their advocacy efforts. Geoff is hopeful that once the social tipping point for electric vehicles is reached and people realize their benefits, the transition to renewable energy will accelerate. He believes that economic pressures, such as insurance companies facing the financial impact of climate change-related disasters, could also drive positive change.
