If you missed hearing Eco-Week featured speaker Chad Ellis last night, you missed an interesting lecture. Chad Ellis, a ’99 GS graduate, is a doctoral candidate in Chemistry at Carnegie Mellon, and works with their Institute for Green Oxidation Chemistry. He spoke about the field of green chemistry and the imperative for better communication between scientists and policy-makers so that policy-making can be better informed by science.

In order to connect you with some of the resources he recommended for people interested in this topic, I’ve added the online resources from his reference list to the MW library’s bookmark account under the tag, green_chem. Certainly thought-provoking information!

A sincere thank you to SECSEE and the PTSA for sponsoring this lecture.
