   There are, in my opinion, two reasons for a heightened awareness of the importance of the energy to our social warfare. First, there is an awareness of the finite supply of fossil fuels stored beneath the surface of our planet, and that one day we will have to make do with sustainable sources of energy. The other reason is the fact that use of such fossil fuels results in carbon releases back into the atmosphere, leading to possible changes in heat transfer from the surface of the earth to space with attendant climate change. For both reasons we may have to change the traditional methods for producing electric power, so there will be need for well educated and innovative engineers who can build the power systems of the future. Also, we have to take into account the fact that electric power is being used for a wider range of applications as time goes on. Nearly all rail transportation employs electric propulsion and hybrid electric automobiles have become important items of commerce and promise to become part of our energy future. Reduction of the need for energy (that is conservation) requires enhanced efficiency and effectiveness of the use of energy, and very often that involves the use of electricity. The implications for education are clear: we in the academic world must educate engineers to be the leaders in designing, building and operating new types of electric power systems. Perhaps even more important, we must also educate a broader class of students who will become leaders in the industrial and political realms to understand at least the rudiments and implications of energy, including electric power.
