"Very informative session."
Bill Thompson

"Could have used more time on this subject."

"Information provided expanded on available material. Q&A session helped clarify several areas."
Fernando Arce

"This is a great idea. I was expecting to see more attendees. Myron did a mighty fine job. I'm surprised that companies haven't done this in the first place as part of good business practices. Maybe now a spinoff off will be controlling green house gas emissions. Environmental safety!"

"I'm not directly associated with the chemical industry, but it gave me a basic idea of one facet in the building of a more secure nation."
