Future Research on Climate and Energy Issues

  • Rex J. Fleming


Other space/time scenarios of climate-change that need to be better understood are provided.

There needs to be a fresh discussion on the degree that renewables are combined in the power production sequence with fossil fuels. Previous decisions were based upon a false premise and not on hard facts. These decisions will impact several generations of Earth’s inhabitants over the next several hundred years.
