Faculty Kudos - Drs. Tom Baldino, Sid Halsor and Ken Klemow

Three members of the Wilkes faculty, Dr. Tom Baldino, Dr. Sid Halsor, and Dr. Ken Klemow, collaborated with four off-campus colleagues to author an article "Ten Challenges to De-Carbonizing Our Energy Supply" that was published on Wednesday by the Huffington Post.  The link to the article is http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kenneth-m-klemow/ten-challenges-to-de-carb_b_9253120.html.

The article addresses the technical, economic, and societal issues that must be faced as we attempt to transition from energy sources based on fossil fuels (coal, oil, natural gas) to those that are non-carbon based (wind, solar, biomass, hydropower).  It concludes with a discussion of promising new fuel sources and the need for greater public understanding of energy systems.
