Kentuckian invited to speak at Asian forum on environment

BEREA, Ky. (AP) — The man who has helped guide the safe disposal of chemical weapons stored in Kentucky is traveling to South Korea to give a keynote speech.

Craig Williams is the Kentucky Environmental Foundation’s Chemical Weapons project director. He will be in Seoul to speak at the Green Asia Forum. The foundation says he was invited because of his success in dealing with complicated issues involving several bureaucracies and interests.

Williams says over the years of working with the chemical weapons issue he has learned that you have to work with all interested parties, even the ones who oppose your position.

The forum will be focused on alternative energy, climate change, water protection and conservation.

The forum runs through Thursday.
