"Bottle Buyology" exhibit at MCTC

The “Bottle Buyology” exhibit came to 2012 as a visual representation of how much plastic waste is created in Minnesota.

On Tuesday, March 25, students and visitors will pick up a few optimistic facts about climate change from J. Drake Hamilton, science policy director at Fresh Energy. Hamilton will speak about Fresh Energy’s work to develop climate policy solutions in Minnesota and provide some optimism in the face of all that is disheartening about climate change. Fresh Energy pursues greater energy efficiency through smart legislation, improvements to current laws, better regulations, savvy financial strategies, market-friendly policies and working with utility partners and service providers to increase energy efficiency implementation. She holds a doctorate in physical geology with an emphasis in climatology and water resources.

Stop by for one of two sessions with J. Drake Hamilton:

  • 9:45–11 a.m. in S.3500, Chemistry for Life class
  • 11:15 a.m.–12:30 p.m. in S.1500, Environmental Science class
