The X Prize Foundation will host a discussion of alternative energy ideas at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts on Wednesday, September 10, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. EDT. Some of the world’s most renowned leaders in alternative energy and the environment will share their views. Video of the event will be distributed to both presidential campaigns and will be available for viewing on YouTube (www.youtube.com/xprize).
“Seeking Radical Breakthroughs in Alternative Energy — What I Would Advise the Next President” is the focus of the event. Speakers will include futurist Dr. Ray Kurzweil, biologist Dr. George Church, inventor Dr. Saul Griffith, and X Prize Foundation Chairman and CEO Dr. Peter Diamandis, among others.
This is the kind of thought-provoking program the Earth-Ship movement plans to sponsor in the near future. Once launched, the Earth Ships will become floating auditoriums dedicated to promoting worldwide awareness of the environmental impact of global warming and climate change. They will serve as demonstration labs for alternative energy innovations. They will bring together people and ideas from around the world for spirited discussions and problem-solving forums focused on global warming, climate change and the protection of our environment.
