Sydney Science Forum: Energy, The Global Challenge?


4 May 2010

On Thursday 13 May, visiting Professor David Cahen will deliver a free public lecture as part of the Sydney Science Forum, Energy: The Global Challenge?

Energy: The Global Challenge?
Energy: The Global Challenge?

Professor Cahen will explore the questions:

  • How will mankind be able to meet the growing energy demands of the world population?
  • Do we want our future energy supplies to be 'sustainable' or just 'clean'?
  • If so, how sustainable or clean, and for whom?

Starting with an overview of what is perceived as 'the energy crisis', and what our options are, Professor Cahen will explore short and medium-term approaches to overcome this global challenge. Basic science will be the major player for long-term solutions to our energy needs.

His analysis will also touch on how mis-information shapes our thoughts and views on the 'energy crisis' and the importance of discerning fact from fiction.

The lecture is presented in collaboration with The Weizmann Institute of Science.
