Tuesday, July 7, 2015 - 4:15pm - 5:15pm
Energy consumption and its consequences have spurred some of the most important public debates of our time. Beginning June 21, 2015, the University of Wisconsin-Madison invites you to join in the discussion during our free, four-week online course, Energy and the Earth, taught by professor and geoscientist Alan Carroll. The Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) will develop “big picture” perspectives on energy issues, based on the concept that all energy systems, fossil and renewable, depend on finite geologic resources of the Earth. All are welcome to participate regardless of experience.
In order to learn more about energy on an world-wide scale and discuss it on a local level, Scandinavia Public Library is offering in-person discussions regarding Energy and the Earth. Moderated hour-long discussion of each week's course content will be held on Tuesdays at 4:15 p.m. at Scandinavia Public Library on June 30, July 7, July 14, and July 21. Participants are encouraged to interact with the online content prior to attending the in-person discussions, however it is not required.
