Ethanol contributes around $5 billion to Nebraska’s economy, but it does much more than pump money into the State, it can also help keep our air clean. David Hallberg has spent 35 years in the ethanol industry, and is the keynote speaker at next week’s Science Café hosted by the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Hallberg will discuss how ethanol is truly a healthy alternative to gasoline in his presentation “Examining the Public Health Threat of Gasoline Emissions in Urban Areas”. He sat down with Ryan Robertson of KVNO News to preview that event.

Science Cafés involve a face-to-face conversation with a scientist about current science topics. They are open to everyone (21 and older), and take place in casual settings like pubs and coffeehouses. A science café’s casual meeting place, plain language, and inclusive conversation create a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere for people with no science background. Each meeting is organized around an interesting topic of conversation. A scientist gives a brief presentation followed by a question and answer period. Pizza will be provided by The Nebraska Coalition for Lifesaving Cures for the first 50 people.
