Political Bigwigs in Las Vegas Tomorrow for National Clean Energy Summit

Lots of high-energy political figures will be in Las Vegas on Aug. 10 at the National Clean Energy Summit 2.0, flapping their jaws in discussions on how to build a clean energy economy. 

In addition to former President Bill Clinton (also rumored to be having a stag birthday in Las Vegas tomorrow- not on the taxpayers’ dime), former Vice President Al Gore and California ‘Terminator’ Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the event will also be a cornucopia of public officials, including Energy Secretary Steven Chu and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis.   

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said the forum will focus on creating jobs through investments in green power. 

Recent surveys, however, show Americans are turning a cold, if not freezing shoulder to global warming, and are especially irate when it comes to considering or enacting legislation that might result in higher power bills or contribute to the continuing erosion of jobs.

The event begins at 10 a.m. inside the Cox Pavilion on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.  Tickets for the event cost $150.  For more information, visit www.CleanEnergySummit.org.
