One of the most important issues facing the world today is energy – in particular, consumption, availability, cost, and the impact on the environment. As residents of Kentucky, the future of coal is an item of particular interest, as many are concerned that our dependence on non-renewable sources of energy is a potential problem; others worry about the economic repercussions of weaning us off of those energy sources. Two experts in this field, Lauren McGrath and Heath Lovell, will offer a joint presentation from different professional vantage points. Lauren McGrath, a representative from the Sierra Club ‘Beyond Coal & Clean Energy Transition’ campaign based in Louisville Kentucky, and Heath Lovell, Vice President of River View Coal, will both provide their unique positions on the future of energy in Kentucky and beyond.
