Our friend and former board member Dr. Paul Heltne, President Emeritus of the Chicago Academy of Sciences, will be offering the next lecture in the Dominican University MAKING WAVES series.
His talk, Water 101: The Adventures of the Miracle Molecule, will explore how the blueness of our planet does not tell the whole story. It only begins to hint at the interconnectedness of water: its reach from the deepest ocean trench to the highest snow-capped mountain peak, the fresh water we ingest and inhale-- the living water that produces food and provides substance for the molecular structure of each living organism. This presentation will trace the interconnection of all aspects and occasions of water, its influence on escalating changes in weather as well as its vulnerability, its scarcity, and its diminishing capacity to self-purify.
How can we protect what we don’t understand?
