Dates for your Diary - 2005

January 24,  The State of the Oceans
Are we depleting the oceans' resources by our methods of commercial fishing? Will enough fish survive to produce the next generation?  What effects are the drugs we use having on aquatic life? Hear Tom Fote, one of New Jersey's representatives on the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission, answer these and other questions about the status of our fisheries.

February 28, More Time – Cleaner Environment
Energy efficiency enables us to improve our quality of life while reducing household costs. In turn, the reduction in costs makes it more viable to use increases in labor productivity to reduce the workweek without a cut in pay.
