“Ethics of Energy Production” receives wide media attention
March 31, 2016
UNIBusiness associate professor Craig VanSandt, who also holds the David W. Wilson Chair in Business Ethics, organized a series of presentations called the “Ethics of Energy Production” at the University of Northern Iowa to encourage discussions on how production impacts jobs, the law, and agriculture.
“[The future of energy production] is going to affect our children, our grandchildren and animals in the environment as well,” VanSandt said. Main topics of discussion included the Bakken oil pipeline, the Rock Island Clean Line power transmission project, eminent domain, environmental justice, and the future of Iowa’s energy needs.
“We had a great group of speakers, many who appear to be movers and shakers in the Iowa political and environmental circles,” said VanSandt. Over 120 attendees took part in the day-long seminar, which received wide media coverage.
