Free Lecture: Scientists & Society at a Crossroads: Seabed Mining in the Deep Sea

On Wednesday, March 4, at 2:30 p.m., the City of Coronado’s John D. Spreckels Center will be streaming a free lecture on, “Scientists & Society at a Crossroads: Seabed Mining in the Deep Sea” in partnership with UC San Diego’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. Given the growing demand for deep sea metals created by electronic and green technologies, scientists are faced with decisions about whether to engage in baseline and impacts research that enables development of a new extraction industry, and whether to contribute expertise to the development of environmental protections and guidelines. This lecture addresses the ethical and societal challenges of exploitation in a relatively unknown realm.
