Keynote Talk: "DISCONNECTION: Energy Fantasy is Colliding with Energy Reality" - Mark Mathis


For more than twenty years Mark Mathis has been an advocate for good energy policies for America and the world.

Mark is creator of Clear Energy Alliance videos, short-form animated explainers on important energy topics that are misunderstood and often misrepresented in the mainstream press. He is the Producer/Director of spOILed, a 2011 film that examines the vital role oil plays in our daily lives. In 2016 Mathis released Fractured, a documentary that makes the case that the words and phrases we use in describing energy are dangerously deceptive—sometimes intentionally so. Mark is author of Feeding the Media Beast: An Easy Recipe for Great Publicity. His book is published in the U.S., China, Russia, Korea, and India and has been used in several universities as a textbook in journalism and communications classes.

Mark was the Founder and Executive Director of the energy education non-profit organization CARE, Citizens’ Alliance for Responsible Energy. In 2005 he testified before Congress on the dangers of environmental extremist groups. Over the years Mark has been a featured speaker for such varied and distinguished organizations as the National Football League, American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers Association, the Department of Justice, Saudi Research & Marketing, the Independent Petroleum Association of America, and many others.
