Tuesday, April 15, 2008 @ 7:00 PM-8:30 PM
The well-being of our environment is one of the greatest issues we face today. Don’t miss out as the Perspectives on Science and History Lecture Series brings together a panel of experts to discuss environmental issues and their effect on us right here in St. Louis. Dr. Pratim Biswas, Fellow of the Academy of Science–St. Louis and Stifel and Quinette Jens Professor of Environmental Engineering at Washington University, will discuss the global energy scenario and its importance to the St. Louis region. Dr. Dave Robertson, Ph.D., professor of Political Science at the University of Missouri–St. Louis, will relate the history of environmental policy and how environmental concerns are tied into social issues in St. Louis and around the nation. We will be joined by Glenda Abney, manager of the Missouri Botanical Garden’s EarthWays Center, who will speak about the things we can do in our own lives to reduce our carbon footprint.
