For those of you interested in climate change, there is a White House
conference on Monday that you might want to see. Apparantly the actual
White House location is a very exclusive affair, only about 100 people have
been invited.

Redefining Progress

On October 6 the White House is hosting the White House Conference on Climate
Change: Impacts of Global Warming, in Washington, DC . To accommodate
interested parties around the country, the White House will be providing a
one-way satellite feed to approximately 28 cities. The conference is
scheduled to begin at 10 am EST with Vice-President Gore introducing President
Clinton, who will speak for 20 minutes. Through the course of the day
different panels will cover the science, emissions reduction technology, and
the Kyoto conference with concluding remarks by Gore. In each of the
satellite link-up sites, their will be local panels to talk about the same
issues. Climate Countdown is working to generate a turn-out of climate
change activists at each event to deliver the message that we need action now
to reduce greenhouse pollution. The sites for satellite
participation follow:
