Geoffrey Ozin: Jar of Fears – Do We Want to Fight CO2 or Embrace It?
Fri, May 12, 2017, 4:30 PM – 7:00 PM CDT
Many people are very confused about what to do with our growing CO2 challenge. This confusion is creating great uncertainty amongst the public, media, industry, business, policy makers and governments. It is creating much anxiety about the future we can expect for our children. There is uncertainty whether this is a molecule we should love or hate, trust or fear, heed or ignore?
This lecture will explore whether chemistry and engineering strategies for transforming CO2 into renewable fuels can provide a solution to this grand challenge.
With opening remarks by President Alan Shepard, words of welcome by Faculty of Arts and Science Dean André Roy, and NSERC Quebec Manager Robert Déziel.
Moderated by Faculty of Arts and Science Associate Dean of Research and Graduate Studies Kim Sawchuk (Department of Communication Studies).
Reception to follow.
