PLACE: George P. Williams, Jr. Lecture Hall, (Olin 101)

The mission of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has been inextricably bound up with the nation’s energy policy ever since the creation of the Agency in 1970. Controversies have flourished throughout this time, and while today’s debates have a different focus, EPA still finds itself in the middle of the action. Dr. Meiburg will review why this is so, give some examples of how past controversies resolved themselves, and suggest what to look for in the present debates.
