Think & Drink

  • Sam's Tap Room 1445 Broadway Ave N Red Lodge MT (map)

Join us for our monthly Think & Drink event. This month’s topic: What Today's Science Might Do for Tomorrow's Nature. Ever wondered how technology might change the surrounding world? Join environmental ethicist Christopher Preston from the University of Montana as he discusses some wild ideas emerging from today’s research labs. These include de-extincting lost animals, building synthetic microbes for composting plastic, sending deliberately chosen traits through animal populations with gene drives, and engineering the climate for cooler temperatures. We are learning radical new ways to change the world around us. But should we do it? This is an opportunity to talk about what we might gain and what we might stand to lose.
