Stopping Eco-Extremism: A Conference on Legislative, Legal and Communications Strategies to Protect Free Enterprise, Private Property and American Business<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
March 7, 2002
Radical environmentalists have been active for decades. But now, a far more dangerous threat has emerged: eco-terrorism. Media-savvy attack groups have turned public opinion against technology and have cost businesses billions of dollars in lost sales, excessive regulatory compliance costs and baseless lawsuits. They have intimidated researchers and destroyed laboratories, businesses and private property using any means possible - including arson, burglary, assault and vandalism. Most executives are too intimidated or poorly informed to prepare for and preempt this growing threat - until now.
You are invited to join a select group of corporate and policy leaders at "Stopping Eco-Extremism: A Conference on Legislative, Legal and Communications Strategies to Protect Free Enterprise, Private Property and American Business." The presentations will detail specific steps leaders can take to stop the attacks, and will reveal the hidden agendas, strategies and funding of well-known activist groups. There is no charge for attendance. Keynote speakers include:
·Congressman Scott McInnis (R-CO), Chairman of the Resources' Subcommittee on Forests and Forest Health, is a leader of congressional efforts to further explore the growing threat of eco-terrorism and lawlessness on our national forests. McInnis recently held a hearing focused on the violent and increasingly frequent attacks of environmental terrorist groups.
·Nick Nichols, CEO of Nichols · Dezenhall, crisis manager and author of the new book "Rules for Corporate Warriors: How to fight and survive attack group shakedowns"
A panel discussion will follow, featuring a counterterrorism expert, an eco-terrorism victim, and a CEI environmental policy expert. Ample time for audience Q&A will be allotted.
