SAN FRANCISCO, April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The federal government's former head of energy transportation will be addressing the University of California Berkeley Forum on Thursday, April 10, 2014, from 4:00 - 5:15 PM. The panel discussion will focus on energy policy, consumption, and the future of fossil fuels.
A staunch advocate for stronger federal oversight of the energy, transportation, and utility industries, Mr. McCown served as the first head of the federal government's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA). He will be addressing current and pending challenges facing California and Washington policymakers, including recent high-profile pipeline and rail incidents in New York, Quebec, and California.
Appointed by UCB alumnus, former Secretary of Transportation, Norman Y. Mineta, Mr. McCown's agency was responsible for overseeing the safe and secure movement of one million daily hazmat shipments as well as the country's 2.6 million miles of pipeline. Currently, PHMSA oversees the logistics and infrastructure associated with two-thirds of all energy products consumed in the U.S. on a daily basis.
WHO: Former federal pipeline and hazmat safety regulator, Brigham A. McCown, is available for interview this week in San Francisco, prior to his upcoming speech to the University of California Berkeley.
WHAT: McCown states, "Our Nation faces significant energy infrastructure challenges. How we advance our energy priorities, address shortcomings, and leverage technology will define our country for generations to come. This dialog isn't a wish or a desire; it is a necessity for our economy, our safety, and our way of life. We must roll up our sleeves, put aside our differences, and come together to find solutions to these challenges."
WHEN: April 8th - 10th, 2014
