Energy Engineering Seminar: K. Max Zhang

Thursday, February 15, 2018 at 12:20pm to 1:10pm

Olin Hall, 255

Energy and the Environment: Known Unknowns and Unknown Unknowns

Engineering in a social context and the roles of Cornell engineers

This talk goes through the recent history in the development of modern air conditioning and automobiles, scientific exploration for refrigerants and gasolines, intended and unintended consequences of energy utilization. While energy and the environment are both essential to sustainable development, environmental constraints don't have to stifle energy innovations. The speaker tries to argue that, in fact, history has shown the opposite to be true.
