The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels
Epstein challenges many popularly held ideas about energy, industry, and the environment, including the big picture benefits (and costs) of fossil fuels and nuclear power. He draws on cutting-edge research and original insights to offer an alternate perspective on the energy debate and shares eye-opening thoughts into how fossil fuels and technology will improve the lives of people – safely, cleanly, and effectively – for years to come.
A Case for Alternative Energy
Robert C. Hart
Retired Electric Power Company Executive
In part one of a two part series on energy we heard last wweek from Robert Hart, a retired international business executive in the energy field living in Ponte Vedra. Hart has had a lot to say about the future of the energy industry, alternatives to fossil fuel power and the question of power company privatization.
Bob’s 30-year energy career began in the coal fields of West Virginia and extended to the electric power industries of more than 30 countries throughout Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia, and Latin America. He has led the development, acquisition, management and operation of investments in 57 power projects, with total generating capacity of more than 16,000 megawatts and total capital cost of more than $15 billion.

Does not include Active-Life or Honorary members.
Our club policy is to validate and pay for members who park in the Omni parking garage only and not the ground level parking. New parking directions are now in effect on those days that the garage is "full.".
► Use the Pearl Street entrance of the garage
► If the "Lot Full" signs are posted pull into the lane with the orange cone and LAZ attendant. There will be an attendant located at the entrance from 11 am - 1 pm.
► Identify yourself as a Rotary Club member. The attendant will remove the cone and allow you to enter.
► Make sure you pull an entrance ticket and bring it with you to the meeting to receive a validation ticket you will need to exit the lot.
► When leaving exit the Pearl Street side of the garage. Don't attempt to validate at kiosk's located on the first floor on the island or next to elevators.
► Note the steps above are only in the event that the "Lot Full" sign is on. If the sign is not displayed, any entry lane of choice is acceptable.
Let us know if you experience problems parking.
Pres. John Fryer has issued a President's Challenge to encourage members to get to know other Rotarians by inviting a member to dinner with their spouse.
A directory of names and contact information is at the registration table each Monday. You also use this book to acknowledge you have accepted and completed the President's Challenge.
Be sure to take a photo of your dinner outing and post to our Facebook page along with a brief note about who, what, where and when.
