IU Southeast Distinguished Teacher of the Year Award (1992) IU Southeast Distinguished Research and Creativity Award (2001) The world energy supply, its heavy dependence on fossil fuels and the resultant carbon dioxide emissions constitute a multifaceted problem currently facing the world. Since 1999 I have been exploring various aspects of this problem and have written a junior level textbook on environmental physics which was published in July, 2010 (Foundations of Environmental Physics). I also have a presentation and Power Point talk on Climate Change: What do we know about climate? and I maintain an Enviro Blog on environmental issues.
