Energy and the Environment - What Physicists Can Do
The global warming crisis is part of a bigger transformation in which
humanity realizes that the Earth is a finite system and that our
population, energy usage, and the like cannot continue to grow
exponentially. While politics and economics pose the biggest
challenges, physicists are in a good position to help make this
transition a bit easier. After a quick review of the problems, we
discuss a few ways physicists can help.
