The Climate Apocalypse
Rapidly growing human population accompanied by a rapid increase in the use of fossil fuels is straining the resources of our planet and may lead to our extinction. This presentation illustrates the problems we face and the results we will reap with and without a change in the way we generate our energy and use our resources. Unless we address our careless behavior and plan a course to deal with the impact on Earth we will lose everything. By designing proactive programs to deal with these challenges, we can alter the future in a positive way.
About the Speaker: St. John (Sinjin) Martin graduated from the University of Maryland in 1965 with a degree in electrical engineering. He then worked for Honeywell and several other area companies as well as NSA. After retiring, he spent several years studying climate change causes and effects before joining Arctic Energies, an alternate energy company that pursued ammonia-based systems. It was that association that spurred interest in designing systems using solar, wind, geothermal and ocean energy to produce electricity and vehicle fuels.
