Energy is all around us, lighting our homes, getting us to work, and providing virtually every modern necessity. Although energy is an essential part of our daily lives, we rarely think about where it comes from, how much we use, or where our energy future is heading.Join us for this second in the series to learn about the single most defining issue of our time: energy and climate. Get an overview of the geology, history, and physics of these complex systems. Each topic may be attended as a stand-alone class. These courses are free and open to the public. No pre-registration required.
The presenter is Sandy Lawrence, a retired physician with long-term interest in energy issues.
