Science to Go: The Anthropocene Seminar I: Materials & Energy Resources
November 10 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Over the past few centuries, humankind has reached such a level of influence that we have literally added our very own stratigraphic layer to Earth’s system, ushering in a brand-new geologic epoch called, appropriately: The Anthropocene! During this series of three half-day seminars, Dr. Jeff Corney will take you on a trip through the various human-induced environmental issues that have contributed to this new “layer” in Earth’s history: Human population growth and consumption patterns, renewable and non-renewable resource extraction, energy generation, and production of plastics and other commodities. This series may also be eligible for continuing education credit through Ashland University (if interested, please inquire). Feel free to bring snacks and even a lunch.
Cost: Per Seminar: $30 members / $45 non-members;
Series: $75 members / $120 non-members
