Are Most People Energy Illiterate?


September 4, 2014 :: Jason Donev
Moderated by Klaus Jericho

The greatest challenge to modern society comes from the twin problems of getting the energy needed to support life and the consequences of getting that energy. Many people are talking about these two issues separately, often because they only understand one small part of the problem. This talk will show why it is imperative for the world to have a better informed viewpoint on the benefits and risks of the entire energy sector.
