in the U.S. 2008 Presidential Election:
Positions and Controversies
Dr Larry Parker,
Energy Analyst of the US Congressional Research Service
Tuesday 19th February,
3.30 – 4.30pm House of Lords, Room A, 2 The Abbey Gardens
Not since Jimmy Carter’s famous speech in 1977 have energy and
environmental issues been higher up the USA’s political agenda –
and they are likely to feature prominently in the 2008 presidential
Two years ago, Dr Parker, one of the most experienced analysts from the US Congress’
famed Congressional Research Service, gave a POST parliamentary seminar on the fu-
ture of nuclear power in the USA which was widely acclaimed by those who attended.
Dr Parker now returns to the UK and will give a similarly insightful, unbiased and up-
to-the-minute analysis of the way energy and environmental issues are likely to feature
in the US presidential campaign. He will cover: climate change; enhanced domestic
production, including tax incentives and activities in sensitive areas; nuclear power;
alternative fuels and fuel efficiency measures.
All parliamentarians and their researchers are invited to this special meeting, for which
numbers are limited to 30.
