Economic and Environmental Demands in Wyoming Topic of UW Television Program

November 9, 2016

How Wyoming might adapt to changing economic and environmental demands, and the future of pipeline expansion for transporting oil and natural gas will be topics on the University of Wyoming news and information program “Wyoming Signatures” Sunday, Nov. 13, at 5:30 p.m. on Wyoming Public Television.

Mark Northam, UW School of Energy Resources executive director, will explain how Wyoming might adapt to changing economic and environmental demands.

In another segment, Chuck Mason, the H.A. “Dave” True Jr. Chair in Petroleum and Natural Gas Economics in the UW Department of Economics and Finance, will discuss the future of pipeline expansion for transporting oil and natural gas, and what that might mean for Wyoming.

He also will discuss the Dakota Access Pipeline, a $4 billion project that the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is protesting and has taken legal action to keep it off its land.

Also, in a lighter segment, brothers Alan and Pete Simpson gave what may have been their last public performance a few weeks ago at UW. This comedy team of native Cowboy State sons told tales from their youth, and many years in public service and politics.

In this excerpt of that performance, they joke about local politics and one of Al Simpson’s more famous moments as U.S senator on the Ted Koppel show.

The show will be rebroadcast Wednesday, Nov. 16, at 11:30 p.m.

“Wyoming Signatures” is produced by UWTV of the UW Outreach School. Wyoming PBS can be seen over the air and via cable or satellite in communities throughout Wyoming. A complete list of channels can be found at
