Who'll Win the Race to Build the Car of the Future?

Jim Motavalli, Editor of E Magazine, to speak in Grand Rapids  on Tuesday, 
Jan. 25, 2000 at noon.  He will be speaking at Grand Rapids Community College 
in the new Calkins Science Center Auditorium (not the Applied Technology 
building as previously posted on Enviro-Mich) on Boswick, just north of Lyon.

Environmental editor, Jim Motavalli will give a lecture  about the future 
generation of cleaner cars and the driving forces behind their creation. 

The lunch-time event is free and open to the public.  You are welcome to 
bring your lunch and refreshments will be served.

Motavalli is the editor of "E Magazine" and the author of the forthcoming 
book, "Forward Drive: The Race to Build the Car of the Future." Motavalli 
also writes a syndicated weekly auto review and a periodic column for The New 
York Times' "Cars" section. 

While environmentalists charge that the automobile may be the single most 
environmentally damaging invention in human history, automakers can now build 
driver-friendly, high-mileage, low-emission cars and trucks using cleaner 
manufacturing processes. Motavalli will speak about the race between U.S. and 
foreign automakers to build cleaner cars for a mass market.

The Grand Rapids event is co-sponsored by the West Michigan Environmental 
Action Council and the Center for Environmental Study at Grand Rapids 
College.  Contact Jenny Allen on 616-451-3051 for more information.
