PubliCalendar: Hear From an Energy Expert

Today's picks for civic nerds

By Darren Davis January 14, 2015

For Wednesday

The Future of Global Energy Trade
Energy expert Marin Katusa says America's role as the leading global energy authority is beginning to slip. As the second largest oil exporter in the world, Russia has come to challenge the United States in terms of power over the oil sector. 

In his book, The Colder War, Katusa suggests this shift in power is not likely to change, and forecasts possibilities of a Russia-dependent EU and America.

Putting a Price on Carbon

With cap-and-trade legislation brewing in Olympia, and public sentiment toward climate change experiencing a sea change (no pun intended) toward acceptance and agency, now is the time to have conversations about what climate policy could actually look like. 

'The Moth: Home Lost and Found' is a Seattle University project that invites those who have dealt with family homelessness to share their story.

The Moth offers an invaluable stage for people to tell their stories. The Moth Radio Hour and various other performances throughout the nation have showcased dynamic, funny, heartbreaking personal testimony in topics ranging from gender identity to video games.

The Moth: Home Lost and Found is a Seattle University project that invites those who have dealt with family homelessness to share their story. The hope is to illuminate the public on the real struggles and dispel misconceptions.
