Panel Will Examine Energy Choices Monday
April 5, 2012 — University of Wyoming faculty experts will examine implications of future energy choices during a panel discussion Monday, April 9, from 6:30-7:45 p.m. in Room 210 of the UW College of Arts and Sciences Building.
"There are many choices concerning energy that will be made in the near- to mid-future that will impact this country and the world," says Jim Scott, UW Physical Plant director and chairman of the Campus Sustainability Committee. "Coal, gas, oil, solar, wind and bio-fuels are among them, each with their own advantages and limitations."
The Campus Sustainability Class hosts the panel to examine issues surrounding these technologies and the implications for future energy choices. The event is free and open to the public.
Panel members are Carrick Eggleston, professor of geology; Milton Geiger, UW associate extension energy educator; John Kaszuba, School of Energy Resources associate professor of geology and geophysics; and Bruce Parkinson, professor of chemistry.
