Sustainable Energy Meeting

Wednesday, November 10, 2010 7:00 pm to 9:00 p.m.
Event open to the public at no charge!

Chuck Dale, professor at Eastfield, became interested in solar and wind energy years ago and started adjusting the way he lives personally to help sustain the environment. He, along with two other Eastfield professors prepared the curriculum for the certification of solar installers. Chuck says “We’re like a caterpillar on a leaf. We’re eating where we stand.” He is coming to CDA to share his story, his passion for sustainable energy and more importantly, What does the Smart Meter on Your House mean to You and the Green Movement?

Tony Robinson, adjunct Professor at Southern Methodist University, has successfully combined his diverse talents in writing, construction and engineering into a specific focus on energy efficiency. His presentation will cover: “Sustainability”, by nature an interdisciplinary subject and like the word “green”, that gets tossed around a lot these days. But what exactly is it? How do we define it? It turns out that energetics & economics are central to our understanding of sustainability.

His presentation will concentrate on the role of these two primary fields in the development of a sustainable worldview. He will touch on some of the fundamental sources of energy, how we harness them and what our prospects are in an industrial economy dominated by fossil fuels.
