Margo Oge, the former director of the EPA Office of Transportation and Air Quality, is Vice Chairman of the Board of Deltawing Technologies, a company bringing a fuel-efficient racing car from the track to the road. She envisions a future of clean, intelligent vehicles with lighter frames and alternative power trains that can produce zero emissions and average 100+ mpg. Margo will provide the ultimate insider’s account of the partnership between federal agencies, California and car manufacturers that led to President Obama’s historic 2010 and 2012 deals doubling fuel efficiency and cutting carbon pollution in half from passenger vehicles. Margo is the author of Driving the Future: Combating Climate Change with Cleaner, Smarter Cars. She also serves on the boards of the Union of Concerned Scientists, the National Academy of Sciences for Energy and Environment, the International Council for Clean Transportation and the Alliance for Climate Education. The book will be available for purchase and signing.
