What’s the iPat Film Series?
iPat stands for “Impact = population x affluence x technology.” The new environmental documentary series opened last night (Sept. 17) with “The 11th Hour,” with the film and discussion Q&A hosted this time by Prof. Michael Draney of Natural and Applied Sciences. Each of the films evaluates the condition of the natural world, identifies the key drivers of environmental harm, and considers the merits of proposed solutions. The series, free and open to the public, is organized by the PEAC student group, the Center for Public Affairs and the Public and Environmental Affairs academic unit.
