Seth Darling is guest speaker tonight at TSRC’s Town Talk.

Known for his ability to debunk climate skeptic myths and engage audiences through talks on energy, water and climate, Seth Darling will present the July 10th TSRC Town Talk.

Dr. Darling is a highly sought-after speaker who has been featured at many TEDx events across the country. He is the Director of the Institute for Molecular Engineering at Argonne National Laboratory, a joint institute with the University of Chicago, and serves as the Director of the Advanced Materials for Energy-Water Systems Energy Frontier Research Center. His group’s research centers around molecular engineering with a particular emphasis on advanced materials for water treatment and renewable energy. He is the co-author of How to Change Minds About Our Changing Climate and Water Is… :The Indispensability of Water in Society and Life.

The end of the Golden Age of Water is upon us. Once abundant, our global supply of cheap and safe freshwater is rapidly dwindling, while the world’s demand for water skyrockets. Water technology and management will undoubtedly be prominent factors that shape global security, culture and environment in the 21st century.

How can we reshape a better future for water?

In his talk, Dr. Darling will discuss how we got to this point, what lies ahead, and what can be done now to respond and adapt.
