Oregon State University’s Science Pub on Monday, May 9, will focus on the perspectives and complexities associated with responsible wind energy generation off the Oregon Coast.
Flaxen Conway, a professor in OSU’s College of Liberal Arts, will discuss how large and complicated challenges like energy, climate change and food security necessitate thoughtful, creative and complementary solutions. She’ll talk about how renewable energy, both at sea and on land, has the potential to be one of those solutions. Conway cautions, however, that there are no silver bullets and that finding lasting solutions requires careful consideration, being explicit about tradeoffs and avoiding or minimizing negative impacts.
The free Science Pub will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on May 9th and will be broadcast on YouTube Live. Registration is required and can be completed at https://beav.es/ioC. Instructions to access the event will be sent to those who RSVP. Sponsors of Science Pub include the OSU Office of Research and the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.
