Everyone is welcome to attend this CIVE 615 Environmental Engineering Seminar (part of the Environmental & Water resource engineering seminar series) given by Dr. Geoffrey I. Sunahara, Group Leader, Applied Ecotoxicology, National Research Council Canada.
Description: Participants in this workshop will learn simple, easily actionable ways to cut down their everyday energy use in order to save money and help the environment. Energy waste is mostly invisible, however the costs add-up quickly – by helping to identify the habits and objects most respon- sible for this waste, and quantify the financial impact, participants can start lowering utility bills and saving money.

Dietary changes since the early 1960s have fueled a sharp increase in the amount of mined phosphorus used to produce the food consumed by the average person over the course of a year, according to a new study led by researchers at McGill University. Between 1961 and 2007, rising meat consumption and total calorie intake underpinned a 38% increase in the world’s per capita “phosphorus footprint,” the researchers conclude in a paper published online in Environmental Research Letters.
