Texas Tribune Festival On the Road – Symposium on Energy & Environment April 13, 2012

If you are in the Houston area, there is a free Energy Symposium April 13, from 8 to 4 at the Wortham Theatre on campus at the University of Houston (131 Wortham Theatre, Houston, TX 77204). There will be speakers and panel discussions covering topics related to the Eagle Ford all the way to broader Texas energy plan issues. Be sure to check our Eagle Ford Conferences page for future events.

Here’s a short summary of the agenda:

8-9 The Chancellor of the University of Houston System will speak

9:15-10:15 Barry Smitherman, Chairman of the TX RRC is presenting on “An Energy Plan for Texas”

10:30-11:30 Is Clean and Renewable Energy an Oxymoron? – Panel Discussion

1:30-2:30 The Impact of the Eagle Ford Shale – Panel Discussion

  • Not really anything new.  A couple of politicians and an environmentalist talked about what theoretically needs to happen. If you aren’t involved in public policy (intimately), you didn’t miss much.

2:45-3:45 A conversation with two state representatives from the House Energy Resources Committee

  1. Bill Millico says:

    I wish such a symposium on energy and the environment would be taken to more distant locations. I live in Scottsdale, am a financial advisor and believe the opportunities created, the independence such discoveries as Eagle Ford and the Bakkens should be shared with the American public as a whole. Granted this might be a suggestion beyond your financial capabilities and the busy schedule of those involved but, the public needs to know more about fracking, drilling and the bountiful potential this country has NOW.
