Lt. Gov. Mark Parkinson will be one of the panelists at a public forum at 6 p.m. today at Wichita State University designed to â€œengage the community in an honest discussion of Kansas energy policy, green energy options and potential green energy solutions in Kansas.â€
The panel also includes Bill Wentz, WSU distinguished engineering professor emeritus; state Sen. Donald Betts, D-Wichita; and Kay Johnson, director of Wichitaâ€™s Department of Environmental Health.
The event will be held in Hubbard Hall, Room 209.
Our editorial today notes that while the focus on Earth Day tends to be on what individuals can do, itâ€™s much easier for average citizens to get involved in ecofriendly practices if their community encourages green living and makes it affordable and convenient. Unfortunately, Wichita doesnâ€™t have a good record on that, particularly on recycling.
