Abstract

Description

How does energy impact the environment and our lives? Did you know that we use more water through our light switches and outlets than our faucets? Would it surprise you that there is more energy embedded in the food we Americans throw away than Switzerland uses in an entire year? In this talk, Dr. Webber will provide a sweeping view of energy’s role in society over hundreds of years with fun facts, myth busting, and an optimistic eye towards future technologies and solutions. Bring your energy questions and Dr. Webber will do his best to answer them.
