IonE is breathing new life into the old lecture series. Frontiers in the Environment explores the frontiers of knowledge in climate change, renewable energy, land use, food security and many other environmental hot topics. Our speakers provide the audience with a true understanding of the issue, its global significance and breakthroughs on the horizon. Join us Wednesdays for a presentation and Q&A session, followed by a casual get-together in the IonE Commons. The lectures also air live on the Web. Watch recordings of the Fall 2012 lecture series.
