Energy expert Dr. Scott Samuelsen
The Earth's physical environment is challenged by many factors including our personal choices. The kinds of consumption, resources, and technology with which we engage can impact conditions of global warming and climate change.
The Libraries' spring exhibit, "Green Evolution: Creating a Sustainable Future" examines the changing conditions of our environment, while showcasing a range of sustainability research taking place at UCI and beyond. Topics covered include global warming and climate change; energy and alternative resources; water quality and management; and the latest practices for going green. An array of materials will be on display to illustrate the evolution of environmental science and the scope of activity that has influenced progress in the field of energy alternatives. Julia Gelfand, Applied Sciences and Engineering Librarian, and Mitchell Brown, Research Librarian for Chemistry and Earth System Science, are the curators of the exhibit.
The opening night event will be held on May 6, 2010, at 5:30 pm in Langson Library and will feature a talk by energy expert Dr. Scott Samuelsen.
