Dangers Posed by Obsolete Chemicals

Last Thursday, the Vice Chancellor of the Catholic University College of Ghana, Prof. James Hawkins Ephraim, gave his inaugural speech as a fellow of the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences.
The inaugural speech is a tradition of the Academy that sees newly inducted members give a talk on an issue in their areas of expertise.

The speaker, being a professor of Chemistry chose to talk on the topic, "The Dangers that Obsolete Chemicals Pose to Us."
Below are some tweets that captured the moment. I will do well to update this post with pictures soon.

There's a lot we can do as individuals to help save our environment, and safeguard our health.
Folks like @GreenGhanaian and @QwophiCedi are already on the way. Let's join the cause!
God (will) Bless our Homeland Ghana -- only when we do our part.
UPDATE: Here is a link to the presentation!

  1. These are really important issues. Thanks for making us all more aware.

    1. Indeed they are. I was really lost in thought at some points of his lecture. I hope to get a summary of his lecture and share it. Thanks

  2. Great work here Kafui! I'm so glad you've brought up this issue. Ghana has real issues when it comes to implementation of our beautiful laws. This is one of the environmental issues that needs to get on the map. We must do better! We will take up the issue as well at Green Ghanaian. The more we speak and educate, the better things become.
