University of Waikato Hangout
Deep Sea Oil Drilling in NZ Q&A session
The world is running out of ‘easy’ oil sources and is now turning to previously considered too expensive or risky areas such as the Arctic and our pristine coastlines. Those opposed to deep sea oil drilling say New Zealand is not prepared for the risks involved, which could create widespread economic and environmental problems.
University of Waikato experts in coastal/ocean science, law, iwi perspective and tourism economics will discuss these issues in a Google hangout.
Join our expert panel and raise your questions in our Google hangout:
- Professor Barry Barton, Te Piringa - Faculty of Law
- Dr Willem de Lange, Senior Lecturer, Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences (Faculty of Science and Engineering)
- Angeline Greensill, former Lecturer, Department of Geography, Tourism & Environmental Planning (Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences)
- Dr Dan Marsh, Chairperson Economics, Waikato Management School
- Professor Christopher Battershill, Professor-Chair in Coastal Science (Faculty of Science and Engineering)
