NEWS: See Beyond Cassandra.org for very rough drafts of "Climate Clubs and Climate Corps" -- two new projects we are incubating -- and "Rays of Hope: a strategy for the next two years".

At CLIMATE WEEK in NY, Sept 2014, Daniel Kammen and I published two articles: In the Huffington Post: "Did We Just Find a Cool Trillion Dollars for Green Energy Projects?" we present a new concept about funding climate projects. In the Guardian is "How a single multinational corporation could light up the world."

LIghtUp is a way to finance pay-as-you-go electrification for a billion people using 1/80th of US international profits "stranded" overseas. Help us create a campaign to make this happen.

Below, see the URLs for HuffPo and Guardian, and at BeyondCassandra see updates -- and a job specification for a person to turn this idea into a successful campaign.

ABOUT ME: I'm a writer and serial entrepreneur working on cleantech since 2001. I thrive on innovative ideas, campaigns, and companies inspiring change. I create and volunteer for nonprofits, and I advise and invest in cleantech startups.

I focus most on building awareness about the climate crisis, humanity's greatest challenge ever. I'm incubating a range of ideas and initiatives, working with people at 350.org, Environmental Entrepreneurs/NRDC, TED, Sierra Club, and in the cleantech world. Read more at BeyondCassandra.org.

In March 2014, the UK Guardian published my proposal to "Buy Out & Phase Out the US Coal Industry." It created lots of buzz and sparked a working group to advance the idea. See that at the BeyondCassandra link

I founded the nonprofit California Cars Initiative (CalCars.org) in 2002 to bring plug-in hybrid cars like the Chevy Volt to market. In late 2009, we declared first-stage victory on plug-ins. Thomas Friedman said in his best-seller, Hot Flat and Crowded, "Felix Kramer has made plug-in electric cars not only his passion but an imminent American reality."

The past decade has been the most satisfying and productive work experience of my life. We have so much more to do!
