Event Details

Colin Carter, Professor, Agricultural Economics, UC Davis
Neil Koehler, CEO, Pacific Ethanol
Michael Marsh, CEO, Western United Dairymen

Putting gasoline blended with corn in your gas tank could increase the cost of food on your kitchen table. That’s the claim of farmers and ranchers who say federal policies mandating corn ethanol production raise the price of feed for American cattle, pork and poultry. Furthermore, transportation fuel including corn doesn’t reduce carbon pollution much when its entire lifecycle is considered. Does corn have a place in powering America’s future? How does it impact California’s clean energy goals?

Location: SF Club Office

Time: 5:30 p.m. check-in, 6 p.m. program, 7 p.m. networking reception
Cost: $20 non-members, $12 members, $7 students (with valid ID)

Also know: The speakers and audience will be videotaped for future broadcast on the Climate One TV show on KRCB TV 22 on Comcast and DirecTV.
