Energy for a Rapidly Evolving World
MIT and Energy for a rapidly evolving world.
“The numbers are overwhelming,” Henry Jacoby tells us in his overview of the final forum panel. The U.S. consumes one-quarter of the world’s energy and emits one-quarter of the world’s carbon dioxide. The combined population of India and China is nine times that of the U.S., so what will happen as they approach our level of energy consumption? Responses to this challenge, which must be on an enormous scale, should be weighed with great care.
