On June 11th and 12th Google.org and the Brookings Institution will host a conference on plug-in vehicles in Washington, D.C. We'll examine their potential to reduce oil dependence and pollution, and the role that federal policy can play in promoting them.
Planned attendees include top bipartisan elected officials, including Senators Orrin Hatch, John Kerry, and Lamar Alexander, as well as Congressmen John Dingell and Jay Inslee. We'll hear from FedEx CEO Fred Smith and New York Times columnist Tom Friedman. Speakers will include advocates, officials, and automakers from around the world. We hope you'll join us.
Can't make it to Washington? You can still get involved! We've issued a call for videos, so grab a camera and tell us why you want to drive a plug-in. If you already own one, show us how it works. The videos will be displayed on our website and the best ones will be shown at the conference. We'll also be webcasting the event for those that can't be there in person.
See you in Washington!
