She is currently on assignment at the U.S. Center in Copenhagen."Hi, this is Susan Elbow at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change here in Copenhagen. Today, I'm standing in front of an information kiosk. It's one of many that are throughout this huge conference center. On it is all of the information about all of the events taking place though the course of the day. It has information about the dozens of events taking place at the U.S. Center. Virtually every government, every business, every non-governmental organization has events going on during the conference.
This weekend, I went to something called BrightGreen. It was a huge trade show featuring what business has to offer in the areas of energy efficiency and alternative energy technology to help us all deal with the issue of climate change. Whatever agreement is reached here in Copenhagen, we know in order to meet the goals set by that agreement, we are going to require technology and a lot of technology that may not exist today. Energy Secretary Chu was speaking today over at the U.S. Center, and it was a message that he echoed. He said we need game-changing technology and with the right government policies and investments, we will get it. We still have four days left of the conference, so check in with me again tomorrow as I bring you information about all the activities and events taking place here."Follow the U.S. Center on Facebook, Flickr, Twitter and YouTube here.
