From energy production and distribution to global warming, it is easy for the public to become confused by a vast array of conflicting information. In the name of environmentalism we sometimes can adopt positions and policies that are ultimately damaging to the environment. In an effort to promote "responsible environmentalism" we will employ physics and data-driven methods to evaluate those policies that can result in a better world for our descendants.
All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
