About the series:
Massive changes are under way in the United States, particularly in the utilities and manufacturing sectors because of the enormous increase of domestically produced natural gas. A myriad of scientific and policy issues have emerged. This Seminar series features corporate executives who will address these issues and what they mean for our nation and the Southeast.
