Pacific Standard magazine, the award-winning publication of the Miller-McCune Center for Research, Media, and Public Policy, is bringing two of its esteemed journalists to Antioch University this Thursday, May 2, to discuss the potential impact of new, surprising sources of fossil fuel at home and abroad.

Lisa Margonelli, author of Oil on the Brain: Petroleum’s Long, Strange Trip to Your Tank, and Pacific Standard editor Vince Beiser will be joined by UC Santa Barbara geochemist David Valentine, whose research includes looking at the aftermath of offshore oil spills and whose lab has explored field sites from Alaska to southern Chile. Michael Todd, a staff writer at Pacific Standard, will moderate the conversation.


This free public event is co-sponsored by the UCSB Institute for Energy Efficiency as part of its Summit on Energy Efficiency. It is the first in Santa Barbara’s 2013 First Thursday series, a program highlighting downtown arts, culture, and entertainment. Alma Sol, a micro-boutique winery, will be serving wine.
