Energy: What's Sustainable?
Thank you for the chance to be part of this important and fascinating program. I'm well aware of my two special responsibilities as the first speaker of the day.
The first is to wake you up. To that end, I plan to give voice to the editorial writer in me and walk onto the edge of a few political positions with which you may or may not agree ... but which, I hope, will stir up some thoughts and questions.
My other responsibility is to stay within the allotted time. A windy lead-off speaker can throw off the agenda for the rest of the day. To keep myself on schedule, I'll speak from a text and try not to stray.
