Energy production and the associated environmental and economic impacts are of great importance, as they impact virtually every aspect of industrialized society, including national security issues and the potential for global climate change.

The Department of Chemical Engineering Spring 2008 Colloquium on Future Energy Sources, the Environment, and the Economics will host Arthur B. Robinson, guest lecturer, on Thursday, February 14, 2008 at 11 a.m. in Parker Hall 355. The focus of this colloquium is to examine various aspects of these three topics and in particular their close inter-relationships and highly interactive nature.

Robinson is co-founder and professor at the Oregon Institute of Science and Mathematics and co-authored the paper, "Environmental Effects of Increased Atmospheric Carbon Dioxide," which supports the claim that man-made CO2 has had no discernable contribution to current global warming. Everyone is invited to attend Robinson's talk entitled "The Influence of Man Made CO2 on Global Warming." To learn more about the colloquium log on to: www.eng.auburn.edu/seminars.
