Holmes Hummel is a "Lecturer and Policy Specialist at the UC-Berkeley Energy Resources Group, and previously served as a Congressional Science Fellow focused on energy and climate policy development." That’s from her bio. What’s not on her bio is the fact that she’s smarter than you and 10 of your smartest friends, combined.
She’s put together a PowerPoint slideshow and taped a lecture titled, "U.S. Energy and Climate Policy on the Road Ahead," and it’s worth your while to give it a read/listen. Find it under the "Recent Posts" section, here.
