When it comes to polluting industries, Texas' elected leaders often champion jobs over health and the environment. Are big chemical and oil refineries really a good deal for a city's bottom line? Moderated by Melissa del Bosque of The Texas Observer, join for a discussion with Sen. Rodney Ellis, Matthew Tejada of Air Alliance Houston, Bryan Parras of T.E.J.A.S. and Jay Olaguer of the Houston Advanced Research Center, alongside a video introduction by the Observer's multimedia editor, Jen Reel.

The form takes place in the McMurtry Auditorium in Duncan Hall.
