'Future Energy' Discussion Brings Together CEO, Climate Scientist And Local Artist


"A CEO, a climate scientist and an artist walk into a bar..." This is not the beginning of a joke, but the premise for a panel Tuesday night, called “Future Energy.”

It's being presented by the Community Office for Resource Efficiency, or CORE.

Brian Hannegan from Holy Cross Energy, a utility that serves part of the Roaring Fork Valley, and Roger Pulwarty, a climate scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Boulder, will be joined by local artist and activist, Sarah Uhl.

Uhl says all three panelists have different ways of getting to the same end goal: reducing energy consumption.

"We all care about the same thing, and we’re all working really hard to get people to rally around these causes, and, from my perspective, I’ve had a lot of success getting emotional buy-in through art," she said.

“Future Energy” starts at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Aspen Center for Physics.
