Former US Secretary of Interior, Gale Norton, to speak at Case Hall

The MSU Boone & Crockett Distinguished Lectureship Series
Gale Norton speaking about
“Energy, Wildlife and Jobs: Environmental and Economic Realities”
Tuesday, November 8 • 11 a.m.
James Madison Library • Third Floor Case Hall

Norton will look at the relative footprints of renewable energy and fossil fuels, as well as the siting problems that will be faced by renewable mega-projects, the potential impacts on wildlife habitat and other land uses, and the folly of hoping for a magic bullet.

A member of President George W. Bush’s cabinet, Norton from 2001-2006 managed more than 20 percent of the land area of the United States, a Fortune-500-sized budget and a workforce of 70,000 employees. She is currently Senior Adviser at Clean Range Ventures.

Norton’s talk is part of the Boone and Crockett Distinguished Lectureship Series and sponsored by the Center for Systems Integration and Sustainability and James Madison College.

After the talk, STEPPS attendees are encouraged to comment on this blog.
