“Science is an ongoing process. The more we know, the better our questions and the more we learn.”
These wise words are from UNBC chemistry professor Todd Whitcombe’s weekly column in The Prince George Citizen on Nov. 28, 2018.
I would like to add to it: the more we learn, the better the decisions we make. And now is a good time to talk about it. This week, natural resource sector, government, community and First Nation leaders are gathering in Prince George for the annual Natural Resource Forum. Many of the delegates will be new mayors and councillors from around the province following last fall’s elections.
For 2019, the forum is focusing on subjects such as innovation and technology, mining excellence and the future of the energy industry in B.C. So much of this is driven by scientific research that it is easy to see just how important science is to a prosperous and sustainable future for B.C.
