SoGES presents March 8 panel discussion on dismantling the EPA

SoGES presents March 8 panel discussion on dismantling the EPA

The School of Global Environmental Sustainability is bringing CSU and the community a panel discussion on the impact of dismantling the Environmental Protection Agency.

Americans depend on the EPA to protect their health and environment. Clean air and water protection, for example, save thousands of lives every year. How many will suffer if deregulation of the EPA becomes the symbol of lost protection for public health? The panelists will provide their experiences in engaging with environmental policy and regulations by addressing whether regulations matter. They will also draw direct examples from their evaluations of the health effects of air and water contamination on human and environmental health as they question whether we are making America unhealthy again.

Join them at Avogadro’s Number, 605 S. Mason St. in Fort Collins, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 8.

The panelists

The panelists are:

• Robert Duffy, Department of Political Science
• Delphine Farmer, Department of Chemistry
• Robert Young, Center for Contaminant Hydrology
• Jennifer Peel, Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences

The discussion will be moderated by Gene Kelly, associate director for research and development at SoGES, deputy director of the Agricultural Experiment Station and associate dean of CSU Extension.

The panel discussion, part of a Managing the Planet series, is free of charge and open to the public. Visit sustainability.colostate.edu for more information about SoGES.
