In a lecture titled "What Are We Mining Now," Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter Dionne Searcey discusses the mining of minerals such as cobalt and lithium, which are deemed essential to move away from a fossil fuel economy, yet the mining of these minerals creates their own form of environmental destruction. As with ancient gemstones, the people doing the mining are sometimes placed in grave danger, often without choice.

This program is cosponsored by the Department of Environmental Sciences Climate Talks.

The exhibition Making an Impression: The Art and Craft of Ancient Engraved Gemstones will be open extended hours until 7:30 p.m. in conjunction with this lecture.
