Klaus Rittenbach is a retired electronics engineer who now volunteers for environmental organizations dealing with issues related to climate change.
A graduate of Princeton University, he spent most of his career working on various electronic communication technologies such as radar and videoconferencing. Although he officially retired in 2011, he hasn’t really retired at all – he joined Citizens’ Climate Lobby, Climate Action New Jersey and the Sierra Club as a volunteer, and is now as busy as ever. He works with them to raise awareness about what he sees as one of the most pressing issues of our time — climate change, and he works towards putting effective legislation in place to speed the transition from fossil fuels to clean energy.
He’s interested in speaking at the conference because he wants to tell his story about how his involvement with these environmental organizations has helped him unlock his personal potential, identify unmet needs in NJ and the larger community, and create value to meet those unmet needs. He hopes to inspire others to do the same.
