The world faces an energy crisis over the next century which has been spotlighted by recent events with political upheaval in the Middle East, the nuclear emergency in Japan, the increasing recognition of severe weather changes as part of global climate change, and the exploding growth in energy demand by emerging economies in China and India. Further the United States faces growing costs and risks of dependence on foreign oil to fuel our cars and run our economy.

We have many energy options but each has cost trade-offs in terms of global warming, air pollution impact on human health, land use, energy security and possible catastrophic risk. So how do we plan for our energy future? How can we power the world for the next 500 years without destroying our planet or ourselves?

Mark Z. Jacobson, Stanford Professor, has researched the impacts and trade-offs of each energy option. He will share his research, conclusions and proposal to meet the world energy needs with the best energy options and considering materials, transmission infrastructure, costs, and politics.
