Join WattHead's Jesse Jenkins for Webinar on ACES Climate Bill Thursday

WattHead readers are invited to join me and fellow Energy Collective blogger and environmental economist John Whitehead for a webinar (or "twebinar": we'll be taking live questions via Twitter) on the American Clean Energy and Security Act this Thursday. Details below:

The Energy Collective Webcast: What Will ACES Achieve?

Tune in Thursday, July 2 at 12:00 EST

The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Friday to pass the American Clean Energy and Security Act, commonly known as the Waxman-Markey Bill. While it has yet to pass the Senate, the bill promises an unprecedented and sweeping package of climate legislation, the full ramifications of which are yet to be determined.

But will the bill actually accomplish all of its purported goals? And how? What effects, short and long-term, will the bill actually have on the U.S. economy and the current path of climate change?

The Energy Collective presents a live, interactive webcast in which energy experts and TEC blogger board members Jesse Jenkins of the Breakthrough Institute and John C. Whitehead of Appalachian State University will dig into the bill and provide insight into its likely effectiveness in a number of key areas. Participants will have the opportunity to participate and ask questions by following along on twitter with the hashtag #talkaces.

Don't miss this opportunity to participate in a live, in-depth discussion with other energy experts and aficionados. Dial in Thursday at 12:00 EST at:
