About This Activity

Description

The currently developing ENERGY CRISIS is often in the News! Let?s learn together what are plausible goals for solving our current Energy overuse and how to make the best choices work for the future of our still growing world human population. We will use two contrasting sources to stimulate discussion and our joint learning: selected lectures from a recent Teaching Company DVD course: "The Science of Energy: Resources and Power Explained? (2016) taught by Michael E. Wysessions, a geophysicist from Washington University-St. Louis and an older Book (2009) by David J.C. MacKay ?Sustainable Energy?without the Hot Air? which is available FREE on-line (UIT Cambridge, England) @ . Format: we will rotate the role of facilitating discussions among our participants and bring in current media contributions as they are relevant. Leaders for the Group: Anne Frankel, Genetics (PhD. from the U. of Iowa) and Richard Ramseyer, a trained Engineer & Strategic Planner (BSEE & MSCIS from U. Penn. & Brown U.), who has worked in the field of Sustainable Resource Utilization since 1985 as part of the bigger vision of a ?Sustainable World?. Fee: none. Registration required.
