Nature Conservancy Senior Scientist Jonathan Hoekstra

(KCPW News) While clean energy technology can revolutionize the nation’s power supply and economy, exactly where that power is developed is key to preventing the problem of energy sprawl. That will be the message presented Wednesday night by Jonathan Hoekstra, Senior Scientist with The Nature Conservancy, as part of the Utah Museum of Natural History’s 2011 Nature of Things Lecture Series. The event will take place at the Salt Lake City Main Library Auditorium, and will be broadcast live on 88.3 and 105.3 FM.
