Tuesday 13:30 - 15:30
Location: MR 114/115

In this hands-on session, you’ll be one of the first to experience an Energyphile Session with Peter Tertzakian. Learn about Peter’s new project, Energyphile, then dig into “Nobody Tips a Scandiscope,” a story about the ethics of our energy choices and their sometimes unsettling consequences. This sobering tale explores why the practice of using young children to clean chimneys continued for so long, even though there was legislation against it and technology to do the work of the children. Through Peter’s moderation of the story’s discussion questions, you’ll identify how self-interest and other social factors are powerful forces of resistance in the transition to a lowcarbon economy.
