        October 15, 2012: When an edible crop is grown, how might it use and produce consumable energy, water, or food? When land is changed from farming to power generation, how is the availability of energy, water, and food affected? Might pursuit of more energy lead to greater or lesser food production? Greater or lesser water availability? How do different populations prioritize resources? These questions and more are discussed by Nicole T. Carter of the Congressional Research Service, Melissa D. Ho of the U.S. Agency for International Development, and Cathleen Enright of BIO. Moderated by NPR's Richard Harris, this installment in the Global Challenges Discussion Series was held at AAAS headquarters in downtown Washington, DC. #acsscicon #aaas

            The Horinko Group’s Water Division hosted the third installment in its 2012 free webinar series on May 17 and examined the implications of biofuel production on our nation’s land, water, and energy supplies. The rising cost of traditional petroleum and intensifying political debate over our reliance on foreign oil are pushing up pursuit of alternative domestic fuel sources. As biofuel production continues to increase, concern is building regarding excessive water usage and deleterious effects on water quality. This webinar provided factual data and insight from experts on this range of issues; in addition to analysis weighing often overlooked inputs and outputs. Noel R. Gollehon, Senior Economist, Natural Resources Conservation Service, US Dept of Agriculture (Moderator) Elizabeth Erdmann, Assistant Director, Natural Resources and Environment, U.S. Government Accountability Office Dr. May Wu, Principal Environmental System Analyst, Center for Transportation Research, Energy System Division, Argonne National Laboratory Ronald Pate, Principal Member of Technical Staff, Earth Systems Analysis & Energy Technologies and Systems Solutions, Sandia National Laboratories

              November 17, 2014: The types of resources available for energy production continue to evolve. Consumers in a global market have different demands and access to supplies than even a few years ago. How are emergent technologies and changing markets interacting? Will the future energy portfolio be a simple trend from today or look completely different? These questions and others are discussed by Dan Arvizu of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Sarah Ladislaw of the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Bruce Logan of Penn State, and Grant Karsner of ExxonMobil. Moderated by NPR's David Kestenbaum, this installment in the Global Challenges Discussion series was held at AAAS headquarters in downtown Washington, DC. #acsscicon #aaas

                    http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/2009/02/wired_for_progress.html National Clean Energy Project: Building the New Economy. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), a longtime champion of building a clean energy economy and Former President Bill Clinton, former Vice President Al Gore, former U.S. Senator and United Nations Foundation President Timothy Wirth, business leader and clean energy advocate T. Boone Pickens and Center for American Progress Action Fund President John Podesta. The key theme of the forum: overcoming clean energy infrastructure challenges and reducing America’s dependence on foreign oil. The discussion will focus on guiding the transformation of our nation’s energy policies with particular attention on modernizing the electricity grid, integrating energy efficiency and distributed generation into its operation and regulation, rapidly increasing transmission capacity for renewable energy, and reducing our nation’s dependence on foreign oil through natural gas, plug-in hybrids, and batteries in the transportation and distribution system. The National Clean Energy Project builds on the August 2008 “National Clean Energy Summit” sponsored by Senator Reid, CAPAF, and the University of Nevada Las Vegas. The participants in the summit concluded that inadequate access to transmission was one of the most significant barriers to widespread development of renewable energy. The goal of this forum will be to discuss the best, most cost-effective options to “green the grid” and lay the groundwork for a broad national consensus between as many key stakeholders as possible on a clean energy agenda that will reduce emissions, increase reliability and affordability, and make us more secure and competitive. This important event will influence the development of a new and better national energy policy and should help speed its adoption. Among the list of confirmed participants in the roundtable are many top leaders in government, business, labor, and non-government organizations including: * Secretary of Energy Steven Chu * Secretary of Interior Ken Salazar * House Speaker Nancy Pelosi * Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Chair Jeff Bingaman (D-NM) * House Energy Independence and Global Warming Select Committee Chair Ed Markey (D-MA) * Senate Energy and Water Subcommittee Chairman, Appropriations Committee Byron Dorgan (D-ND) * Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Acting Chairman Jon Wellinghoff * Former Governor George Pataki (R-NY) * Owens-Corning CEO Michael Thaman * Wal-Mart Stores Inc. Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors and former CEO Lee Scott * American Electric Power President and CEO Mike Morris * Sierra Club Executive Director Carl Pope * Riverkeeper Alliance Chief Prosecuting Attorney Robert Kennedy, Jr. * American Wind Energy Association CEO Denise Bode * National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners President Fred Butler * Green for All Founder and President Van Jones * Service Employees International Unions President Andy Stern * U.S. Green Building Council President and CEO Rick Fedrizzi * Sea Change Foundation President Nat Simons Comments from participants: “On February 23, the best minds on energy and the environment will come together to tackle critical issues that are necessary to achieve energy policy transformation in this country,” Senator Reid said. “This forum will build on the discussion that was started back in August at the National Clean Energy Summit, where we gained valuable insight on the hurdles preventing America from becoming energy independent, including a grid that does not provide enough access to transmission and the need to tap one of our own domestic resources, natural gas, in the transportation and distribution system in our country. In bringing together these top energy leaders, we can identify solutions that will accelerate the development of a comprehensive and effective energy policy in this country.” “This a great opportunity to build upon the conversation Senator Harry Reid started during his National Clean Energy Summit last summer in Las Vegas. If we resolve ourselves, we will create a clean energy revolution that will create hundreds of thousands of jobs, strengthen our economy, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels and oil and save our planet,” Gore said. “I look forward to working with Senator Reid, Secretary Chu, Secretary Salazar, and the New Administration on aggressively pursuing a Clean Energy agenda.” “We need to show the country that we are serious about establishing a national energy plan. This forum will propel the discussion and build momentum around a core set of clean energy objectives, including greening the grid and reducing our reliance on foreign oil.” Podesta said. “America is dependent on foreign oil, there’s no question about it. But there are several things we can do to change that and The National Clean Energy Project will bring these solutions to the forefront,” Pickens said. “I look forward to being part of the discussion as we examine alternative energy sources, including wind, solar, and natural gas and find ways to overcome the barriers that have been standing in our way up to this point. America can break its dependence on foreign oil and this forum with top energy leaders is a great step in making sure that happens.” About the National Clean Energy Project Convened by Center for American Progress Action Fund President John Podesta, the event will focus on modernizing and expanding the electricity grid, integrating energy efficiency and distributed generation into operation and regulation, rapidly increasing transmission capacity for renewable energy, and reducing our nation’s dependence on foreign oil by examining short- and long-term solutions to replace foreign oil with domestic resources to fuel vehicles and trucks, including natural gas. The honorary chairman for the event will be Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). * Principle One – How do we build the modern electricity grid? * Principle Two – How do we reduce our reliance on foreign oil?
