The YSU Lecture Series on Energy and the Environment kicks off its third year featuring lectures focusing on global warming.
“With all the extreme weather events we’ve been experiencing and with 2016 set to pass 2015 as the hottest year on record, these speakers are of the utmost relevance,” said Ray Beiersdorfer, Distinguished Professor of Geology and the founder/organizer of the lecture series.
Tonight’s lecture is by Ted Auch, Great Lakes Program Coordinator, FracTracker Alliance, titled “The Water, Waste, and Land-use effects of high volume hydraulic fracturing industry across the Great Lakes: Now and in the future.”
The speaker series is sponsored in part by The James Dale Ethics Center and NextGen Climate Action.
All lectures are 7 p.m. Wednesdays in Room B100 of Cushwa Hall and run through Nov. 16. There is ample free parking at the on-street metered-parking spaces along nearby streets.
