At ThEC11, two gentlemen will tell their stories as politicians in Washington with a scientific background. Bill Foster will present on the important subject "What life is like as a scientist in congress" and Parker Griffith will present on why “Science doesn't speak for itself".
You are welcome to join us at ThEC11 in New York!
At ThEC11 he will present on the important subject "What life is like as a scientist in congress".
Not only is it an important subject, but also presented by a person with extremely rare experiences. This is because he joined Vern Ehlers (R-MI) and Rush Holt, Jr. (D-NJ) as the only research physicists ever to be elected to Congress.
Further, he has been elected a fellow of the American Physical Society, received the 1989 Bruno Rossi Prize, received the Particle Accelerator Technology Prize and was awarded an Energy Conservation award from the United States Department of Energy.
Parker Griffith, M.D. (born August 6, 1942) is the former U.S. Representative for Alabama's 5th congressional district, serving from 2009 until 2011.
At ThEC11 he will present on why “Science doesn't speak for itself".
He received his medical degree from the Louisiana State University Medical School in 1970 and began preparing to become a radiation oncologist, one who specializes in using radiation to cure cancer. He was later recruited on a "cold call" to Alabama and established the Huntsville Cancer Treatment Center, the state's first comprehensive cancer-treatment facility. He retired from medicine in December 1992, though he still holds a license to practice in both Alabama and Texas.
Thorium Energy can contribute significantly to curing cancer since its decay products have unique properties as radioactive substances for curing especially malignant cancer.
He is a member of the Republican Party, having switched from the Democratic Party on December 22, 2009.
During his announcement, he stated:
"I believe our nation is at a crossroads and I can no longer align myself with a party that continues to pursue legislation that is bad for our country, hurts our economy, and drives us further and further into debt."
Today Parker is satisfied with his second switch, the one from Uranium to Thorium.
These two gentlemen will join us at ThEC11, will you be there?
