March MTP - Dismantling the EPA: Are we making America unhealthy again?

Date: 
Wednesday, March 8, 2017 - 5:00pm to 6:30pm
Location: 

Avogadro's Number

The School of Global Environmental Sustainability (SoGES) brings to CSU and the community a panel discussion on the impact of disassembling the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). 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? Our 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 we question whether we are making America unhealthy again.

Panelists:

  • 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 Extension.
