  In our desire to power new “green” technologies, another sacred story is swept aside. I like to think, that like my Aunt Pauline and my mother, we just need a little nudging to sort out the confusion—to say, “This is what matters, not the thing itself, but the sacred land and stories it holds. The book provides deep insights on the challenges of achieving such a system and the opportunities ahead. On October 15th, EPIC hosted Russell Gold for a special conversation with Michael Greenstone about “Superpower,” the characters and lessons it details, and the future of the U.S. electricity grid.

  In Powering the Future, Nobel laureate Robert B. Laughlin transports us two centuries into the future, when we've ceased to use carbon from the ground- either because humans have banned carbon burning or because fuel has simply run out. Boldly, Laughlin predicts no earth-shattering transformations will have taken place. This book takes young readers inside laboratories to watch as scientists grapple with finding safe and cost-effective ways to harness alternative energy sources. How will we fuel our future? clear type, and color photos or drawings on every double-page spread, Powering the Future discusses how the age of fossil fuels is ending and looks.

  Please join us for our Powering Partnerships program sponsored by: “Making or Breaking the Future” featuring: Leadership Strategist Chunka Mui. Whether intentionally or not, the current pandemic is forcing all of us to make choices right now that will shape just about every aspect of the future. Excerpt: Powering the Future [From Daniel B. Botkin Powering The Future: A Scientist's Guide to Energy Independence (Pearson FT Press Science. April )] Our current energy crisis may seem unique, but it has happened to people and civilizations before. All life requires energy, and all human societies require energy.

Nobel Prize winner Laughlin (Physics/Stanford Univ.; The Crime of Reason: And the Closing of the Scientific Mind,etc.) invites readers on an “armchair journey” to a future devoid of petroleum, coal and natural gas, proposing alternative resources.

Beginning with a 23rd-century scenario, the author explains how several concerns, including climate change and fossil-fuel dependency. In "Powering the Future," a leading scientist cuts through the controversy, presenting the facts about our energy needs, desires, and supplies and the environmental and human effects of obtaining and using energy.
