Replacing millions of porous windows with energy-efficient versions in older buildings and homes can be prohibitively expensive. Berkeley Lab's Raymond Weitekamp, a Caltech PhD, has a new approach: an inexpensive, paint-on, energy-efficient coating that can be applied simply and evenly without the help of a professional while the windows are still in place.

Current desalination techniques require huge amounts of energy and generate large amounts of environmental waste. Berkeley Lab's Chinmayee Subban, a Cornell PhD, leads a desalination research project that simultaneously reduces environmental waste and energy use by incorporating an innovative mix of low-cost materials.

Over the last 30 years predictions of climate change as a threat to individuals, societies and nations have changed from possibilities to realities. Ethical issues associated with which individuals, companies, nations cause climate change, who might benefit from it, and who will suffer from the impacts have been part of the discussion from the beginning. How has thinking about the ethics of climate change evolved during that time and how does this relate to the ethics of extreme mitigation efforts like climate engineering? Margaret Leinen, UC San Diego Vice Chancellor for Marine Sciences, Director of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and Dean of the School of Marine Sciences discusses what can be done, what is being done, and the ethical implications of deploying solutions.

Tony Barnosky, a Professor of Integrative Biology at UC Berkeley, and Teenie Matlock, the McClatchy Chair of Communications and Associate Professor of Cognitive Science at UC Merced, discuss tactics for communicating the urgency to act and depoliticizing the discussion on climate change. Recorded on 10/26/2015.

In the fourth installment of the Future Thought Leaders series, nationally prominent chefs, fishermen, academics, and activists call on consumers to choose local species of fish when possible to protect the long-term vitality of harvested seafood and the well-being of the oceans. This series was presented by the Berry Good Food Foundation.

Food waste in the United States is at an all-time high. More than 40 percent of all edible food is tossed out each year and half of that is fresh but slightly imperfect produce. What to do? A panel of experts convened by Kitchens for Good and the Berry Good Food Foundation explores how to reverse this trend by connecting suppliers with those who will benefit most from increased access to healthy foods. This is the third of four programs presented by the Future Thought Leaders series.
