Why Climatenomics is a word now with Bob Keefe of E2

In this podcast Melanie Boylan speaks with former Tech Journalist and Executive Director of E2 and author of the very recent book on the subject entitled Climatenomics: Washington, Wall Street and the Economic Battle to Save Our Planet.


It’s sad that we have reached this pinnacle in our climate journey, but with Bob’s attitude and the shift that we can make using economics alone, this is not just a job for the children now.  It’s a whole new area where we can capitalise and actually help protect our planet and find other communities that want this as badly as we do.

Bob Keefe is executive director of E2 (Environmental Entrepreneurs) a nonpartisan organization of more than 10,000 business leaders who advocate for policies that are good for the economy and good for the environment. In addition to overseeing E2’s work and its nine U.S. chapters, Bob speaks regularly about the economic benefits of smart environmental policies, the clean energy economy, jobs and related issues, and has been widely quoted in publications nationwide. He is the author of “Climatenomics: Washington, Wall Street and the Economic Battle To Save Our Planet (Rowman & Littlefield, May 2022) and co-author of several other business-related books.
