Thirst for Power: Energy, Water and Human Survival
ATI Clean Energy Co-Director Michael Webber
Although it is widely understood that energy and water are the world’s two most critical resources, their vital interconnections and vulnerabilities are less often recognized. This farsighted talk offers a new, holistic way of thinking about energy and water—a big picture approach that reveals the interdependence of the two resources, identifies the seriousness of the challenges, and lays out an optimistic approach with an array of solutions to ensure the continuing sustainability of both. Michael Webber is Deputy Director of the Energy Institute at The University of Texas at Austin, a Professor of Mechanical Engineering, and Co-Director of the Austin Technology Incubator's Clean Energy Incubator. He is the author of the recent book, Thirst for Power: Energy, Water and Human Survival. 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center, 1900 University Avenue, Room 203 Austin, TX 78705. Registration is required, includes lunch.
