Award-winning investigative journalist Russell Gold will discuss his book, Superpower: One Man’s Quest to Transform American Energy, which chronicles the obstacles encountered by infrastructure builder Michael Skelly, who began working on wind energy in 2000 when many considered the industry a joke. Skelly helped create the second largest wind power company in the United States, which was sold for $2 billion. The book examines the issues involving the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy.
Gold is an award-winning investigative journalist at the Wall Street Journal where he covers energy.
