SkeptiCamp Winnipeg 2012: Measures to Avoid Adverse Consequences of Fossil Fuels

On Saturday, 29 September 2012, the Winnipeg Skeptics held their third annual SkeptiCamp event. SkeptiCamp Winnipeg is a conference for the sharing of ideas. It is free and open to the public: anyone can attend and participate! Presentations and discussions focus on science and free inquiry, and the audience is encouraged to challenge presenters to defend their ideas.

Dennis LeNeveu worked for 20 years at Atomic Energy of Canada doing research on nuclear fuel waste management, focusing on probabilistic risk assessment. Subsequently, he did consulting work in the area of risk assessment of carbon dioxide capture and sequestration in oil fields. Through this work, he became interested in the consequences of fossil fuel extraction and usage.

SkeptiCamp is an open conference celebrating science and critical thinking. For more information please visit
