S1017: Future of Energy in Splash Fall 2021 (Nov. 14, 2021)
Already an apathetic pessimist, or bursting with optimism about the future of technology? In this crash course on the titular book by Tom Murphy, we'll explore how the one-time rocket ship of fossil fuels we've been riding for the past few centuries has led to a "dangerously distorted impression of what 'normal' looks like on this planet." Using physics and math, we'll remedy our intuition, setting quantitative bounds on the present era and using them to inform future visions. Topics include energy, economics, population, and space colonization, viewed through both quantitative and social lenses.
