Campus Sustainability Day

11:00 am - 3:15 pm - USU Theatre
http://www.csun.edu/sustainability

This year CSUN's Sustainability Day event focuses on issues surrounding Climate Change and is taking place on Thursday, October 25 from 11 am - 3:30pm in the USU Theatre.  The day will include a talk at 2:00 pm by Naomi Oreskes, author of 'Merchants of Doubt' and Professor of History and Science Studies at UC San Diego., who will be introduced by Provost Hellenbrand. The day's events include three sessions which coincide with class times.

The first session (11:00am- 12:15pm) will be a talk given by Dr. Milind Kulkarni, Director of Engineering Institutes at ITM Group of Institutions in Mumbai, India. He will discuss energy challenges in the developing world, in India in particular, and a sustainable development project in which waste water is used to generate renewable energy using bio-digestion.

The second session (12:30-1:45pm) will show a documentary film, "There Once Was an Island", which provides a case study about a tiny atoll in Papua New Guinea facing escalating climate-related impacts. This will be followed by a facilitated discussion on the issues raised.

In the third session (2:00-3:15pm) Naomi Oreskes will talk about the subject of her book -- how a handful of scientists obscured the truth on issues from tobacco smoke to global warming. This talk is part of the Distinguished Visiting Speakers Series and is sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the College of Science and Math, the College of Engineering and Computer Science, and the Institute for Sustainability.
