Calls for action, promising energy solutions emerge from Andlinger symposium

José Avalos has a new approach to producing biofuel: happy yeast. In his presentation last week at the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment at Princeton University, Avalos said current efforts to improve the yeast used to make biofuel often ignore the role that natural selection can play in the development of new yeast strains. A […]

Fusion Energy via Magnetic Confinement – the latest Energy Technology Distillate from the Andlinger Center

Nuclear fusion has enormous promise as a global energy source. The fuel is nearly inexhaustible and the waste products have less environmental impact than the wastes associated with fossil fuels and nuclear fission. Making affordable fusion energy would be a remarkable human achievement. To appreciate some of the key challenges, we examine magnetic confinement fusion […]

As global temperatures rise, children must be central to climate change debates

Forecasts suggest that by 2050, the world could see 200 million environmental migrants, many of whom would be children. For this reason and others, children should be central to such climate change debates, according to a journal released by Princeton University and the Brookings Institution. Rising temperatures, rising sea levels and the increasing likelihood of extreme weather will all alter […]
