Heartland Events

Eastern Regional Energy Summit

Marriott Newport Newport, Rhode Island
August 17, 2007, 12:30 PM - 12:00 PM

On Friday and Saturday, August 17-18, The Heartland Institute is hosting an Energy Summit for state elected officials at the Marriott Newport in Newport, Rhode Island. The event will bring state legislators together with the nation’s leading experts on key energy-related issues facing our country, including air quality, biofuels, energy independence, and global warming.

This summer, gas prices continue to climb, air quality concerns face our cities once again, and the global warming debate rages on. Energy production and energy use in the United States and globally are under attack by ideologically driven environmental advocacy groups, foundations, and their allies in the media and academia.

We invite you to learn how to fight back against those who seem determined to shut down the nation’s manufacturing sector, strangle market forces influencing energy production, and saddle American environmental innovation with command-and-control regulation.
