Abstract

Since 1991, I have taught 181 students from across the academic divisions in my Energy Resources class (ERSC 202). I have noticed some positive changes in how we explore for energy, how we as a college acquire/convert that energy, as well as some disturbing intransigence in how we as individuals use that energy. As part of the class, we do a personal energy audit for one week. We estimate our own personal contribution to global climate change based on how much electricity, hot water, and gasoline we consume. Below, I outline two interesting temporal trends I have noticed.
