Evolution of Technology, Risks, and Community Responses (Session 1: 12:00pm, )
Environmental risks and burdens are not a 21st century novelty, instead they are rooted in rich socio-economic histories and often a narrative of “progress.” This session explores the past, present, and future of energy technologies and how technological evolutions spur new community reactions.
