Monday, October 15, the Pitt Energy Society will be hosting Bob Inglis as he speaks about the future of government subsidies in the energy field. Mr. Inglis is a former congressman from South Carolina. His current endeavor, the Energy and Enterprise Initiative, is advocating for an energy policy that would change government's role from promoting clean energy to taxing negative externalities across the board.
Please join us for a conversation about the future of energy, at 5:00pm in the Alcoa Room, on Monday, October 15. Food will be served.
If you have any questions, please contact David Armstrong at firstname.lastname@example.org
