Loving Nature and Fighting for It: A Natural History of Acid Rain an online conversation with Dr. Gene Likens
Acid rain was the major environmental crisis of the 1970s and ’80s. It was nearly impossible to escape hearing about it, particularly if you lived on the east coast of the US, where its effects were most devastating. In this webinar conversation with Dr. Gene Likens, the scientist behind the discovery of acid rain, we will hear what it was like to be the first person to recognize an environmental emergency, Gene’s fight to effect change in policy and get the word out in the media, and how his science has its heart in natural history and an abiding love of nature.
