OGDEN, Utah – Weber State University’s Environmental Initiatives Committee has planned two events this month, both examining carbon dioxide emissions and their effect on the environment.
On March 20, the film “Who Killed the Electric Car?” will be screened at 7 p.m. in the Kimball Visual Arts Center’s Lindquist Lecture Hall. The event will feature the electric car designed by Weber State students in 1992 as well as WSU freshman Brent Singleton, who modified the vehicle for drag racing. Singleton has been awarded the 2005 U.S. Government National Clean Air Excellence Award and the National President’s Environmental Youth Award.
One week later, on March 27, the committee will host a panel discussion on how traffic congestion along the Wasatch Front is affecting people’s health and mobility. Members of the panel will explain the measures being taken by UTA, WSU and local organizations to remedy the problems and offer tips on how individuals can cut their personal contributions to carbon dioxide emissions. The panel discussion will start at 7 p.m. in the Kimball Visual Art Center’s Lindquist Lecture Hall.
Both events are free to the public and light refreshments will be served.
