Author of The 100% Solution – A Plan for Solving Climate Change
January 27 at 7:30 PM
Solomon Goldstein-Rose has been a climate activist since age 11. His education in engineering and public policy gave him a unique perspective on the intersection of what physically has to happen to solve climate change and what approaches might actually make it happen.
After interning in the Obama White House and in Congress during college, Solomon ran for the Massachusetts state legislature at age 22 and got elected on a platform focused on climate change. During his term he passed several small energy and education policies and created local initiatives for civic education and engagement.
In 2018 he canceled his campaign for re-election so he could work full-time on climate change at the national and global levels. The 100% Solution framework is a product of his political experiences, numerous meetings with technical experts and activists, and intensive research and analysis.
Solomon is also passionate about education policy and election system reform. He lives in Amherst, MA, and makes time for hiking, farming, and directing children’s theater.
