No YEEC meeting in York tonight

Greetings Everyone,

Instead of our usual meeting spot in York this Tuesday, we will be going to see Amory Lovins, the legendary physicist, innovator and author speaking at the Phillips Exeter Main Hall.

The presentation is free and open to the public. It starts at 7pm, but we are aiming to be there by 6pm as it will likely be very full. A few of us will be meeting at 5:30 at the York Park and Ride to carpool. If anyone would like to join us, please let me know, and we’ll find a seat for you.

For more information, about Amory Lovins and his presentation, you can go to this website.

From the description:

Physicist Amory Lovins is Chairman and Chief Scientist of Rocky Mountain Institute and Chairman Emeritus of Fiberforge Corporation (www.fiberforge.com).

His wide-ranging innovations in energy, security, environment, and development have been recognized by the Blue Planet, Volvo, Onassis, Nissan, Shingo, and Mitchell Prizes, MacArthur and Ashoka Fellowships, the Benjamin Franklin and Happold Medals, 11 honorary doctorates,honorary membership of the American Institute of Architects, Fellowship of the Royal Society of Arts, Foreign Membership of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences, and the Heinz, Lindbergh, Right Livelihood, National Design, and World Technology Awards. He advises governments and major firms worldwide on advanced energy and resource efficiency,has briefed 20 heads of state, and has led the technical redesign of more than $30 billion worth of industrial facilities in 29 sectors to achieve very large energy savings at typically lower capital cost. A Harvard and Oxford dropout, he has published 29 books and hundreds of papers and has taught at eight universities, most recently as a 2007 visiting professor in Stanford University’s School of Engineering. In 2009, Time named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world, and Foreign Policy, one of the 100 top global thinkers.

This is sure to be a fascinating presentation. Let me know if you’d like to go!
