News & Events on January 16th, 2013

Turning Earth is proud to join the Host Committee of the 7th Environmental and Clean Energy Inaugural Ball to be held on January 21, 2013. This bi-partisan celebration has become a Washington tradition over the past 24 years as the environmental and clean energy communities gather to welcome a new Administration and make headway towards a more sustainable future.  This year, more than 125 companies and organizations in the environmental and clean energy fields will join together to highlight the importance of environmental and clean energy challenges through bi-partisan cooperation.  This remarkable coalescing of so many different organizations draws key Members of Congress, key Administration officials from the Environmental Protection Agency as well as the Departments of Energy, Agriculture, Transportation, Commerce, and Interior, key industry representatives, and a range of supporters and interested citizens.

In addition to U. S. Department of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, who will be a Special Honored Guest, Deputy Administrator of the US Environmental Protection Agency Robert Perciasepe and Deputy Assistant to President Obama for Climate Change Heather Zichal, will be Special Guests. Also, outgoing EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, Secretary of Energy Steven Chu, and Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabrus are invited guests that hope to join the celebration.  The Honorary Congressional Committee includes Senate Environment Committee Chair Barbara Boxer, Senate Health Committee Chairman Tom Harkin, Senate Renewable Caucus Co-Chairman Mark Udall, and Longtime House of Representative environmental leaders Henry Waxman and Ed Markey.
