E&E Legal General Counsel Dr. David Schnare A Featured Speaker At Upcoming Heritage Foundation “Earth Day” Event

April 22, 2014

Washington, D.C. – On Tuesday, April 22, 2014, the Heritage Foundation will host an event, “Happy Earth Day: Dispelling Environmental Myths and Celebrating Human Achievement,” from 12:00-1:00 p.m. in their Lehrman Auditorium. Dr. David Schnare, E&E Legal’s General Counsel who spent thirty-three years working for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, will be one of the four speakers.

From the Heritage Foundation’s event description:

There is a lot to celebrate this Earth Day. The environment continues to get cleaner. Air and water quality are much better. Human achievement and development are helping to create a more prosperous nation that can better address environmental challenges. This important success story often gets lost in the misinformation campaigns that try to paint a picture of a country with dire environmental conditions. This panel will highlight environmental trends, dispel environmental myths, and demonstrate how human progress is critical to the well-being of humans and the environment.
