The Role of Science in Environmental Policymaking

Washington Policy Center's 9th Annual Environmental Policy Conference and Lunch
Past Event July 21, 2011
Join the Washington Policy Center for their 9th Annual Environmental Policy Conference and Luncheon on Thursday, July 21, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Bell Harbor Conference Center in Seattle. Dr. Patrick Moore, co-founder and former member of Greenpeace, will be the lunch keynote speaker. He is the author of the new book Confessions of a Greenpeace Dropout: The Making of a Sensible Environmentalist and one of the most popular environmental speakers in the world.

Climate change and the environment are some of the most important issues facing our generation. Hear from a fascinating speaker who helped start the environmental activist movement and learn about his transition away from radical environmentalism, and the important lessons it holds for you, our economy and our future. The morning portion of the conference will also feature panel discussions featuring Dr. Cliff Mass, professor of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington, and Dr. Alex Berezow, national editor for Real Clear Science.

Todd Myers, director of WPC's Center for the Environment, will be the breakfast speaker at the conference and will discuss the costs/benefits of eco-fads.
