I'm glad to finally be able to announce that today I begin my new position at The University of Texas at Austin. I'm joining the Webber Energy Group as a research scientist at the Center for International Energy and Environmental Policy. Here at The Intersection, I'll be exploring a myriad of related topics from renewables to fossil fuels (including oil spills) to thermodynamics, and so much more. I'm really looking forward to the discussions that will ensue. As I wrote last week, if we want to establish better energy institutions, it’s up to us to make it so. Given the enormous challenges we face, improving public understanding of related issues is a big part of the solution and more important than ever. Some readers have already requested energy topics in a previous thread and I continue to be very interested in your questions. Also, if there are specific subjects you'd like to see covered, leave ideas in comments below. With that, I'm off to work...
