Stanford researcher maps out an alternative energy future
A study, co-authored by Stanford researcher Mark Z. Jacobson, outlines a path to statewide renewable energy conversion, and away from natural gas and imported fuel.
Mark Z. Jacobson, a senior fellow with the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment and the Precourt Institute for Energy, co-authored the study with scientists from Cornell University and the University of California-Davis.
“Converting to wind, water and sunlight is feasible, will stabilize costs of energy and will produce jobs while reducing health and climate damage,” said Jacobson, a professor of civil and environmental engineering.
Here he talks with David Letterman:

Climate Change: Lines of Evidence
This movie is the culmination of effort from the National Academies to provide the public with the best information available regarding climate change and the science that provides insight and understanding into natural and human influences on climate.
While the movie does examine the basics and fundamentals of scientific understanding there are many other lines of evidence not covered. The movie is an excellent introduction to the fundamental scientific understanding regarding current climate change in relation to the natural cycle and how science has come to the 90% confidence level in the conclusion that humans are in fact influencing modern climate
