Compiled ByGlenn Hasek The Third Annual Earth Technologies Forum will be held Oct. 30 through Nov. 1 at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill in Washington. The event is sponsored by the International Climate Change Partnership (ICCP), and the Alliance for Responsible Atmospheric Policy. Cooperating agencies include the EPA, the U.S. Dept. of Energy, the United Nations Environment Programme, and Environment Canada. Three days of sessions will include discussion of global climate change policy and technology issues. Specific policy discussion topics will include emissions trading, compliance, and inventories of gases. Technology-related topics will include transportation, buildings, energy efficiency, energy supply, manufacturing, agriculture, forests, and electricity generation. "The Earth Technologies Forum is designed to provide information on two of the biggest environmental issues affecting industry today -- climate change and ozone protection," says Kevin Fay, ICCP director. "Technology development and dissemination are critical for industry's response to these environmental problems."
