Title: Energy Use By Humans
Url: http://www.ucar.edu/communications/gcip/m5huenuse/m5overview.html
Creator: Few, Arthur A.
Publisher: Digital Library for Earth System Education (DLESE)
University Corporation for Atmospheric Research
Description: This module promotes an appreciation and understanding of energy and its behavior, how we use energy and what its appropriate uses are, some of the gross misuses of energy and how to learn from our mistakes so as to become better energy consumers, the value of fuels in the energy picture and the importance of economics and policy in influencing behavior, and how energy use by humans involves not just the energy itself, but the climate as well.
