Our Comment

"Robin is particularly adept on speaking about the role of business and innovation in addressing climate change. She also enjoys talking about the future of transportation; location privacy and how to preserve it; and the need to reduce CO2 emissions now, because technology, R&D, and revamping hard assets (cars, transportation infrastructure, housing, urban planning, electrical sources and grids) won't produce significant reductions in the necessary timeframe."
