Conference on Energy & Accountability

Dates: 2002-11-09 - 2002-11-10 9.9 (1 decade 7 years ago)

Where: College Park, MD, United States Venue: Holiday Inn College Park


Description

What are the ethics of innovation, when so many people need a viable energy innovation and the government doesn't? What about the personal examples of active suppression and theft of invention, even in the midst of an energy crisis?

Come hear some of the heart-rending stories, all of which are off-the-record (no media recording). It is a two-day event on Veteran's Day weekend, November 9 & 10, 2002 so that you can fly or drive back on Monday, which is a holiday. Reagan National Airport in DC allows direct metro subway access to the Greenbelt metro stop and the Holiday Inn College Park hotel has a free shuttle service. Otherwise, BWI airport or Dulles airport is also available with about a half-hour drive. See our ad in Discover magazine.
