Graduate College Brown Bag Lecture Series: “Changing Minds, Changing Behaviors, and the Changing Climate”

Graduate College Brown Bag Lecture Series: “Changing Minds, Changing Behaviors, and the Changing Climate”

Monday, March 3, 2014 - 12:00 pm to 12:50 pm

Jack Yates, psychology, and Carole Yates, Center for Energy and Environmental Education, will present "Changing Minds, Changing Behaviors, and the Changing Climate." Can entire communities reduce energy use to win a competition and do the right thing? Yes, with know-how and community spirit. The Yates will share the results of the successful "Get Energized, Iowa!" competition among four small Iowa communities to see which could reduce the most energy use in one year. But is this enough to save the planet? No, individual actions must be followed up with collective action. The audience will be invited to think about how best to use what we know about social science to encourage local, state and national action on climate policies.

Earth Science Seminar: Earth Science and Communities: Great Earthquakes to Wild Rice

Earth Science Seminar: Earth Science and Communities: Great Earthquakes to Wild Rice

Monday, March 3, 2014 - 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Dr. Kenneth Ridgway, Professor of Earth and Atmospheric Science at Purdue University, will discuss the connection between earth science and communities. Such a connection seems obvious to most scientists but is much less clear to most communities. In the first part of his talk he will explore the geologic setting, the infrastructural damage, and the impact on communities of recent large earthquakes in Taiwan, Turkey, Haiti and Japan.  Decisions that communities and governments made about these types of geologic hazards had a profound impact on human life and the built environment.  In the second part of the talk, he will discuss how at Purdue University they are building connections between the scientific community and Native American communities. The strongest connections are developed when Native American students do research on issues that are directly relevant to their tribal lands and communities. An understanding of earth processes is critical in decision making both at the global and local community levels.
