Title: Physics 101: What Our Next President Needs to Know (LBNL Science at the Theater)

Abstract

Rich Muller, author of Physics for Future Presidents, argues that the next president can't afford to be ignorant about the science behind terrorism, nuclear dangers, energy, space, and global warming. Muller, a MacArthur Fellow, Berkeley Lab physicist, and one of the most popular lecturers at UC Berkeley, discusses what it takes to survive in today's increasingly dangerous world -- information essential to the next commander-in-chief. He presented his talk Oct. 13, 2008.
