Some big issues and ideas on energy and the environment will be examined this weekend in Austin.

If you’re in Austin this weekend, there are going to be some engaging conversations on energy and environmental issues at the Texas Tribune Festival, an annual confab of some of the big names and thinkers in the states.

Our very own Mose Buchele will be moderating a panel on issues of eminent domain and landowner rights in the face of oil and gas development. That panel will feature James Mann with the Texas Pipeline Association, Debra Medina with the pro-landowner group We Texans, Bill Stevens with the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers and State Representative Rene Oliveira.

Some other panels will address the future of water supplies in Texas, the state’s energy crunch, a look at energy and environmental issues that could come up during the next legislative session, and an interview with Dr. Al Armendariz, former regional administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and now a representative for the Sierra Club.

You can learn more over at the festival’s website.

Disclosure: KUT Austin, the lead station of StateImpact Texas, is a sponsor of the Texas Tribune Festival.
