      Subject: Panel Discussion April 28th at SFSU (5-7pm): Politics of
      Natural Resources and Energy

      Dear IR Students,

      My name is Ted Andersen and I am the campus
      coordinator at SFSU for a student organization called
      Americans for Informed Democracy
      (www.aidemocracy.org). Our organization is hosting a
      major panel discussion on The Politics of Energy and
      Natural Resources.

      The event will take place from 5-7 pm on Friday,
      April 28 at SFSU in HSS 362 (3rd floor briefing
      theater).

      President Bush pledged to reduce America�s
      dependence on oil in his Feb. 1 State of the Union
      speech, though formal legislation to mandate this
      national reduction still remains absent. Moreover, the
      topics of alternative energy sources and global
      climate change are steadily working their way into
      common public discourse.
      We have a great lineup of speakers confirmed for
      our event. The three-person panel will consist of Luke
      Tonachel, a policy analyst at the Natural Resources
      Defense Council, Ann Kelly, senior energy specialist
      at the SF Dept. of Environment, and Glenn Fieldman,
      lecturer of International Relations and Environmental
      Studies at SFSU. The speakers will address the issues
      of energy in relation to global climate change, formal
      legislative mandating of a national reduction in oil
      consumption and local efforts and inner workings of
      San Francisco�s public officials regarding alternative
      energy sources, among other salient issues.
      The event is free and open for all students and
      community members to attend, and it will also include
      an interactive question and answer period between
      panelists and the audience.

      Ted Andersen
      Campus Coordinator, Americans for Informed Democracy
      & 2nd year MIR student
