    Guest: Riane Eisler, Topics: Making Partnership Mainstream, with Inclusivity and Sustainability

    Guest: Riane Eisler, Topics: Making Partnership Mainstream, with Inclusivity and Sustainability

    On this week's episode of Solutions News, we explore the benefits of a Partnership Model as opposed to Domination Systems with special guest Dr. Raine Eisler, President of the Center for Partnership Studies. Author and social scientist Dr. Eisler, among many other things, is a holocaust escapee from Austria who has both a Juris Doctorate and a Ph.D and has been a Fellow of the World Business Academy for almost three decades. In the show, we explore how human societies can be categorized along a continuum of how strongly it supports general human growth and development (the Partnership Model) versus how strongly it supports the rise of a small class of people on the backs of the rest (the Domination System).

    Guest: Lorenzo Kristov, PhD, Topics: Fixing the Grid and the Future of Electricity

    On this episode of Solutions News we are talking about reliability, safety & resiliency in our electrical grid, and how we might cure California’s current power problems in a way that gets us off fossil fuels, addresses environmental and economic injustice, and also build resilient communities across the state. The answer is simple, we have the technology, we have the know how. All we lack is the political will. Our guest is Lorenzo Kristov, PhD who has spent his career focusing on power system transitions to integrate high levels of renewable generation and distributed energy resources (DER). He’s truly one of the visionary leaders in the field of grid systems design, and we are very excited to share his wisdom with our audience today.

Gives me hope!

I love that this podcast talks about BIG problems in the world today, yet manages to do so in a way that gives me more hope than despair.
