It’s time again for another live “fireside chat” with an interesting sustainability thought leader.   This week, I’ll be chatting with EOS Climate’s co-founder Joe Madden.  As always, this chat will be about an hour long and begin with a brief interview.  We’ll then open it up to audience members who want to talk about applying market-based principles to dealing with the problem of refrigerants and climate change.

In the meantime, if you’d like to get the conversation rolling early, please leave comments or questions and I’ll make an effort to incorporate them into my interview and the ensuing discussion.

IF YOU CAN’T MAKE IT, DON’T WORRY!  We’ll be broadcasting the chat live on our Google Plus channel.  Just bookmark this post and we’ll have a you-tube style interface you can click on when the chat begins, or to watch later.
