EarthX continues to be a supporter of the annual Texas Environmental Superconference. This year’s conference is the 32nd, and the first—and hopefully last—virtual Superconference. As in years’ past, the conference, though virtual, will have a conference song and skits, quizzes, and prizes. Information, including registration can be found here.

This year’s theme is “Hindsight is 2020.” Topics include: Ethics: Environmental Issues and the Public –“I can see clearly now”; EPA and TCEQ During the Pandemic: Enforcement Discretion and Rollback – “Can’t take my eyes off you”; A Future Perspective – “I can see for miles and miles”; Case Law Update– “What you see is what you get”; Air Issues – “Smoke gets in your eyes”; Climate Change– “The future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades”; and Flooding and Reservoirs– “Blue eyes crying in the rain”.

As always, conference speakers include distinguished representatives from the public and private sectors. This year’s speakers include: Anne Idsal Austin, EPA DC, Principal Deputy Assistant Administrator for Air; Ken McQueen, EPA Region 6 Regional Administrator; Bob Perciasepe, President, Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, former Acting and Deputy EPA Administrator; Jon Niermann, TCEQ Chair; Ryan Vise, TCEQ Director, External Relations; Jeff Walker, Executive Administrator, Texas Water Development Board; Howard Slobodin, General Counsel Trinity River Authority; Judy Braus, Executive Director, North American Association for Environmental Education; Al Collins, Oxy Low Carbon Ventures; David Young, Union Pacific; Seth Jaffe, Foley Hoag LLP; and Ashleigh Acevedo, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman.
