A Leap of the Human Imagination: Shalini Kantayya on Solar Energy

Check out Lavin keynote speaker, filmmaker, and eco-activist Shalini Kantayya in a Second Screen Interview clip from the National Geographic Channel’s Breakthrough. With infectious optimism, Kantayya describes a world no longer dependent on fossil fuels: a more peaceful, cleaner, sustainable planet that’s made the switch to cheap and renewable solar energy. In her film Catching the Sun—an Official Selection for the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival—she asks the tough questions about how we can build a clean energy economy based on the sun’s abundant power. “It’s not just good for the one percent,” she explains in this clip. “It’s good for the 100 percent.”
