Join us for the “Creating a Green Future for America” symposium

How can we power our homes, our industrial plants, our automobiles and our cities in the future without destroying our planet? What does an environmentally responsible energy plan look like? There is no more critical issue facing this country. What are the best ways to supply energy and not disfigure earth?

“Creating a Green Future for America” will be a symposium on what we as citizens need to know. Sponsored by Elders United for a Just Society, the symposium will be held Sunday, Sept. 23, 3 to 4:30 p.m., at New Hope Presbyterian Church, 3070 Sweeten Creek Road. All are welcome. There is no charge.

Speaking will be Kevin Moorhead, Professor of Environmental Studies at UNCA, and Dave Erb, who teaches mechatronics engineering at UNCA. Moorhead will offer environmentally responsible ways to provide electric power, and Erb will address the powering of vehicles. Questions and discussion will follow the presentations.

Here is our opportunity to become informed and educated on one of the biggest questions in our future. We disregard it at our children's peril.
