(Harrisburg) -- Governor Corbett and his Democratic challenger, Tom Wolf, will appear in the same place for the first time in the campaign when they deliver remarks at a Pennsylvania Environmental Council dinner in Philadelphia.

The men will speak after a 6:30 p.m. award ceremony today at the Crystal Tea Room.

Environmental policy is at the forefront with President Barack Obama announcing a plan last week to address global warming. He wants to put into a motion a 25-year, 30-percent reduction in the nation's carbon dioxide emissions by ordering cuts in the pollution discharged by America's power plants, primarily those fueled by coal.

Many members of the council's board are from the business world, and its chairman was one of four environmental advocates on Corbett's 30-member Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission.
