Global sustainability efforts

My favorite sustainability links:

Materials Research Bulletin's special issue on Energy.

Sustainable Energy - Without the Hot Air by David MacKay provides a great summary of our energy landscape and our potential for mitigating climate change. Making a great book even better, he has licensed this as a Creative Commons work, making it available for free as a pdf.

And for a good summary of our energy sources and consumption, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory provides this excellent flow chart.
