AUSTIN – U.S. Congressman Lamar Smith, Chairman of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee and U.S. Senator and Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn will keynote at the Texas Public Policy Foundation second annual At the Crossroads: Energy & Climate Policy Summit TODAY, Friday, November 20, at the Foundation’s new building in downtown Austin, Texas. Building on the popularity and success of last year’s summit, this year’s gathering will once again showcase national and international thought leaders who will address the top energy and environmental concerns taking center stage today.
The burgeoning opportunities flowing from the energy revolution are now directly threatened by federal regulatory mandates to displace coal, oil, and natural gas. The transformative powers of energy face the coercive powers of government. Current federal policies to supplant fossil fuels could undermine mankind’s greatest advance and consign the developing world to abject poverty. The stakes couldn’t be higher in this epochal confrontation. Come hear the best minds on these important issues distinguish fact from prevalent myths.
