June 1, 2014 — The Arizona Manufacturers Council’s July Environmental Issues Breakfast is Wednesday, July 9, at Sheraton Phoenix Airport Hotel, 1600 S. 52nd Street, Tempe.

The program content features “Rare Earth Elements, The Next National Security Threat,” presented by Larry Olson of the ASU Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering faculty. Also to be presented is “Salt River Project Price Road Corridor 230 kV Transmission Line Siting Project,” by Janeen Rohovit of the SRP Superstition Vistas Steering Committee.

According to the event web page, “We spent the last 60 years fighting wars and aligning ourselves with very strange bedfellows in order to assure an uninterrupted supply of oil. But oil isn’t the only natural resource that can be used as a strategic weapon. Our modern economy is dependent upon a handful of rare earth elements and China has cornered the market, providing 95 percent of the world’s supply. What are our options from both a policy and technical perspective?

Registration and breakfast is at 7, and the program begins at 7:30 a.m. Price of admission si $35 for members and $50 for non members.
