Mr. Petty suggested that a blog be created to continue the discussion of the seminar topics. I know that many of us are eager to ask questions, but some of them get unanswered due to time constraints.
Dr. Michael Economides and Dr. Maria Barrufet both gave greater insight into the world of energy and its correlation with the environment. From discussing non-renewable (coal, oil, natural gas) and renewable (hydroelectric, biomass, nuclear, wind, solar) energy resources to talking about how countries around the world are dealing with their energy demands, I thought that it was a very mind-provoking session.
I personally took a course (ENGR 101) taught by Dr. Christine Ehlig-Economides during my freshman year of college. I highly recommend everyone to take this course (especially for non-engineering majors) because the material that you learn in the class is applicable to daily life. Also you get a chance to possibly see Dr. Michael Economides present again (the PowerPoint he showed tonight was very similar to the one he presented two years ago in my class).
Anyways, enough of me rambling...
Do you guys have any thoughts or questions on tonight's seminar?
