Transcript of Smart Decisions Using Science and Technology

What happens when all of these competing needs have to share the same space?
"Public lands are supposed to allow for multiple recreational uses. Off-highway vehicle use generates billions of $ for state and local economies."
Solar Energy
Strike a balance using science & technology
2. Informed Process
Resolve disputes over scientific or technical information.

Lessons Learned
Opening data invites more scrutiny.
Official data vs. field data.
Data from multiple sources doesn't always mesh.
Not everyone wants flashy technology - paper is sometimes better.
Decision makers need to be involved in the process to trust the system and its conclusions.
Find a balance between clean energy and tortoise recovery.
