THUNDER BAY – Lakehead University administration, faculty, staff, students, and members of the broader community are looking forward to Dr. Lorne Everett taking the podium tonight at the University’s third Speaker Series instalment of 2010.

Dr. Everett presents The Fifteen Classes of Planetary Emergencies, and speaks about the potential impacts of global disaster on life and planetary emergencies including asteroid impact, global warming, pollution, and radioactive waste.

“We are proud to welcome Dr. Everett to address the Speaker Series for the first of what we hope will be numerous occasions,” says Lakehead University President Dr. Brian Stevenson. “He is a world-renowned scientist and an acknowledged expert on many topics including subsurface hazardous waste characterization and remediation. He is also former Chancellor of the University.  I very much look forward to Lorne’s talk as it marks my first Speaker Series participation, and I’ll have the opportunity to listen on as other members of the internal and external communities take in the expert opinion of a valued member of the Lakehead family”.

The Speaker Series is a free public lecture offered by Lakehead University as an information-sharing event and dialogue, in partnership with The Chronicle Journal, Days Inn North, and 5 Forks restaurant.
