As part of its Gen. John Stark Lectures, the Ethan Allen Institute on June 21 will present a dinner with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., a noted environmentalist and advocate of individual liberty. Kennedy is a prolific and best-selling author, a nationally-syndicated radio host, and a frequent television commentator. He has been a traditional skeptic of government power–much like Thomas Jefferson was in his time.
“The Ethan Allen Institute is pleased to give Kennedy a platform in the state to speak,” EAI President Myers Mermel said. “We are especially interested to learn more about his views on free market and economically fair solutions to climate issues. Our concern this past legislative session in Montpelier was that the Affordable Heat Act was not market based and would punish our middle and low income population. We hope we can find new avenues to explore within structured climate solutions based upon Mr. Kennedy’s perspective and insights on the energy issue.”
What: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. speaking on the topic “Climate, Markets, and Economic Fairness” over seated dinner as part of the Gen. Stark Lectures hosted by the Ethan Allen Institute.
When/Where: 6 PM June 21 at The Doubletree by Hilton, 870 Williston Road, South Burlington.
