As energy consumption, weapons, and global warming play greater roles in world affairs, an understanding of the science that drives these issues becomes increasingly essential for national leaders and for the voters who elect them. UC Berkeleys Professor of physics Richard Muller provides an indispensable resource for understanding the hard science behind world politics today.
Former MacArthur fellowship winner Richard Muller is professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley. He also earned a National Science Foundation Alan T. Waterman Award for original research.
His renowned course for non-science students, Physics 10: Physics for Future Presidents, attracts around 1000 classroom students a year and has lured online students in at least 35 states and 43 countries. To see why, preview select lectures on Youtube: http://tinyurl.com/4you6..
