Environmental ecologist Dr. Charles A.S. Hall from the State University of New York will present a public lecture on Wednesday afternoon, January 9, as part of the Distinguished Lecture Series at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. Hall will discuss the economy and energy.
An internationally known speaker, Hall studies the interrelationships between biological communities and how they consume energy. He is particularly concerned with the validity of economic models that our government uses to formulate policy.
Hall has published 193 scientific papers and four books, including “Biophysical Economics: An Introductory Textbook in Economics for the Second Half of the Age of Oil.”
The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 3:30 p.m. in the Architecture Auditorium (Architecture Building, Room 205) at UH Mānoa.
The Architecture building is located on University Avenue.  On-campus parking is available for $6 after 4 p.m. There is a flat rate fee of $5 for campus parking structures prior to 4 p.m. at the entry kiosks.
For those who cannot attend the lecture on January 9, Hall will speak on energy issues the following day, Thursday, January 10, at 4:40 p.m. at Holmes Hall Room 244 on the UH Mānoa campus.
The Distinguished Lecture Series brings internationally recognized scholars to UH Mānoa for lectures and discussions.
