Re: E-M:/ Conference on Michigan's Future: Energy, Economy and Environment


This conference has nothing to do with Dow and the Big Three.
It is the result of the vision and hard work of Aaron Wissner, a teacher who has devoted a great deal of his time, as a volunteer, to educate our state about the consequence of Peak Oil and the community alternatives in the post-petroleum era.
Aaron is working for all of us.

Peace and good food,

"Healing the wounds of the earth and its people does not require saintliness or a political party, only gumption and persistence. It is not a liberal or a conservative activity; it is a sacred act. It is a massive enterprise undertaken by ordinary citizens everywhere, not by self-appointed governments or oligarchies." -- Paul Hawkens, Blessed Unrest

Enviro-Mich message from mckennab@umd.umich.edu

Are Dow Chemical, GM and the Big Three involved in this conference?

Is there any relationship to the huge energy policy conference that DOW CEO Liveris (and Ford) has called for next Spring?

What is the relationship between the Michigan Environmental Council and Dow Chemical in any efforts to cooperatively brainstorm about Michigan's future in terms of energy policy and industrial policy?
