Lecture by Dominic Bednar, Ph.D.: A Multidimensional Approach to Energy Justice: Exploring Energy Poverty Recognition and Response in the U.S. — 5/3

Posted on April 28, 2022 | Filed under Archive

Join Law & Policy and Environmental Science & Sustainability for a lecture on environmental justice by Dominic Bednar, from Arizona State University, on Tuesday, May 3, at 12:15 p.m. Dr. Bednar’s talk will be virtual, but we will gather in Quigley Auditorium to view and participate. Lunch will be provided.

A household is energy poor when energy needs are unmet; yet, despite its prevalence, the US has not formally recognized energy poverty as a problem distinct from general poverty at the federal level–limiting more effective responses. Current problem characterization and solution interventions lack a holistic framework that considers the multidimensionality of household energy poverty. Furthermore, limited research explores the spatial relationship between energy deprivation factors such as residential energy affordability, energy efficiency, household race/ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. Findings demonstrate that current measurement and evaluative metrics hinge on the distribution of government resources and the number of vulnerable households assisted, rather than improving household well-being and reducing overall energy poverty. This seminar presents evidence of residential energy injustices and discusses pathways towards a just transition–understanding the prevalence, severity, and causes of household energy poverty in the United States.

In between, Bonomo has had a front row seat to some of the most important conservation developments of the last four decades, working at the national level and in 24 states and U.S. territories:

  • The brokering of the Northwest Forest Plan during the Clinton Administration to save the old-growth forests and wild salmon runs of the Pacific Northwest;
  • The earliest emergence of Chesapeake Bay as an imperiled nationally significant estuary and treasure in need of restoration.
  • The 1990 reauthorization of the Clean Air Act which curbed sulfur emissions to mitigate acid rain, and marked the beginning of alternative energy fuel standards.

Work Orders for Events

Posted on April 24, 2022 | Filed under Archive

With the semester winding down and so many events taking place, Physical Plant would like to remind everyone that emails do not take the place of work orders. If you need setups, tables, chairs, electric, hoses, tents, etc., work orders are required. Emails do not constitute a work order and Physical Plant does not have time to create work orders for the many events we have as they are busy taking care of other events and other everyday duties. We want to ensure that no events get missed. We appreciate everyone’s help with this. If you are a student group needing work done, please contact your advisor to have them help you put in a work order or contact Physical Plant if you are having difficulty. We thank you in advance.
