Location: 
Yost Auditorium

The Center for Energy Policy and Management (CEPM) of Washington & Jefferson College (W&J) will host The Rational Middle Energy Series, a series of short films by director/producer Gregory Kallenberg, at a public program Feb. 6 at 7 p.m. at W&J in the Howard J. Burnett Center’s Yost Auditorium.

The Rational Middle Energy Series presents facts and issues pertaining to our development and use of energy, and is designed to prompt a more informed and less polarized discussion of energy among the American public. It also strives to reach feasible solutions to our energy challenges and to help the nation arrive at a cleaner energy future.

The film series will be followed by a panel discussion of interested stakeholders which will model what a rational conversation about energy should involve. Panelists include Bracken Burns, former Commissioner for Washington County, George Jugovic, president and chief executive officer of Citizens for Pennsylvania’s Future, Tim Puko, energy and environment reporter from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review and Sylvie Tran, development manager for Shell Oil Company. The panel discussion will be moderated by John Ubinger, senior vice president of the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, and will include audience interaction.
