'The Sun Don’t Always Shine’: Dealing with the Problem of Storing Renewable Energy
FPU political science professor Ken Martens Friesen will discuss the transition to a renewable, carbon-free economy, looking at emerging technologies which have a potential to overturn our dependence on fossil fuels and stave off the worst impacts of climate change. He will also consider the question of how we can produce the vast amounts of energy that our world requires even on the days when "the sun don't shine and the wind don't blow." Friesen recently published a book entitled, Energy, Economics, Ethics: The Promise and Peril of a Global Energy Transition. Sponsored by the Reedley Peace Center.

Hope for the Earth: Ecological Restoration as Resurrection Practice
How do we find hope for the Earth in the midst of climate crisis? Katerina Friesen, gardener, educator, and Mennonite pastor, will reflect on ecological restoration in light of Christ’s resurrection. She will highlight examples of young people from our region involved in hope-filled restoration work, from regenerative farming projects to native plant habitat restoration, to the return of salmon to the San Joaquin River.
