Wind Turbines, Water, and Weird Weather:  The Future of Energy in a Warming Michigan

A discussion of the future of energy sources in Michigan. What role will the major utilities play? What are the politics involved? Which sources show the most potential?

Social Media, Free Speech, and the Disinformation Age

Recent events, such as new tech company censorship policies, the banning of Donald Trump and many of his supporters from social media platforms, and the announcement of the proposed "Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2021," suggest that we are heading for another period in American life of skepticism toward the core First Amendment principles that lie at the heart of our constitutional order. In this webinar Prof Goetting will argue that radically protecting the quintessentially American right of freedom of expression -  best expressed by  lawyer and theorist Thomas I. Emerson during and after the McCarthy witch hunts -  is what's most necessary to preserve a free and open society now and into the future.

Panelist: Nathan Goetting, Professor and Constitutional Law Scholar
Moderator: Michael DeWilde, Director, Koeze Business Ethics Initiative

This webinar originally aired Friday, April 9, 2021 at 10:50 a.m. EDT.
