Ironically Kennecott Companies, along with the University of Utah's Office of Sustainability are hosting a two-day workshop called Fostering Sustainable Behavior. Certainly this event was planned before the scoop on Kennecott's incredibly derelict decisions in the 80s to conceal the likelihood of a potential catastrophe. But I sure as shit can't how any speaker is going to with a straight face thank their co-sponsor Kennecott for arranging such a workshop. I can sadly imagine the emcee, probably some poor undergrad introducing the workshop and giving the obligatory props to co-sponsor, Kennecott for social and eco-responsibility, rattling off some PR spin line like this one listed in the press release:
"The Kennecott Utah Companies, Inc. cites this workshop as part of its commitment to sustainable development and long-standing support for education at the University of Utah and in the community. "
*cough except for Magna, cough*In reality the event looks to be very interesting and informative, but man, for the U's Office of Sustainability, that's one hell of a sponsor to pick in the first few years of a new program trying to encourage a greener citizenry. (Eric S. Peterson)
