A Bipartisan Panel and Open Discussion

Thursday, March 24, 2016 
2:00 – 3:30 PM

The Aspen Institute 
One Dupont Circle NW, Suite 700, Washington, DC


The Aspen Institute’s Energy and Environment Program and Colorado State University’s Center for the New Energy Economy held a special public panel discussion to explore the politics of clean energy and climate action in the presidential election year. Specifically, can Republicans, Democrats, and Independents find common ground on the role of federal government on these issues? If so, what are the most promising areas for bipartisan agreement? 


The bipartisan panel was moderated by Walter Isaacson, President and CEO of the Aspen Institute, and featured:  Bob Inglis, former Member of Congress (SC) 
Bill Ritter, Jr., former Governor (CO) 
Theodore Roosevelt IV, Managing Director, Barclays Capital Corporation 
Heather Zichal, former Deputy Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change
