10 most important issues facing society:
Somehow within the next few decades we must find a new energy source that can provide at least 10 terawatts (TW) of clean power on sustainable basis, and do this cheaply. Where is that 10-50 TW of new power going to come from? Who will make the necessary scientific and engineering breakthroughs? Can it be cheap enough to bring 10 billion people to a reasonable standard of living? Can it be done soon enough to avoid the hard economic times, terrorism, war and human suffering that will otherwise occur? Energy may very well be the single most critical challenge facing humanity in this century.
