2012 is an important year for Indiana legislatively as more and more environmental issues are making their way into the Statehouse – and HEC needs you more than ever! While our team works tirelessly to advocate for environmental issues in Indiana, it takes broad, statewide citizen engagement – at the end of the day, the voices of the people matter most to legislators.
HEC is joining forces with concerned citizens – like you! – and other groups to advocate for greener initiatives in our state. At the Greening the Statehouse Forum, we’ll cover some of the important topics facing our legislators in the following sessions:
Keynote Address: How will Hoosiers Move in the 21st Century?
Thoughts on Jobs, National Security, and Climate Change in Indiana’s Car Crazy World
One of the most positive stories to come out from Indiana manufacturing is the rise of green cars. Alison Transmission, Cummins, and Delphi, all based in Indiana, are among the nation’s leaders in 21st century automotive technology. What are green cars? What kind of promise do they hold for Hoosier manufacturing? Will green cars be the answer to our unhealthy reliance on foreign oil? Can a car be “green” if it helps keep carbon-polluting power plants going? What bi-partisan solutions exist to advance green transportation solutions – for green cars and transportation writ large – in this contentious political environment?
Jim Motavalli, former long-time editor of E Magazine, contributor to the New York Times, NPR’s Car Talk and Mother Nature Network, and writer of books on transportation and climate change, tackles all of these issues in his keynote address.
