Einstein's Heroes: Faraday, Maxwell, and Electromagnetic Waves

Faraday was the great experimenter in the emerging field of electricity and magnetism, who found it convenient to express his findings in terms of “lines of force”, or fields. While many of his contemporaries were less than impressed, the great theoretician Maxwell adapted and extended these ideas, and was able to show that light was an electromagnetic wave, as verified by Hertz. But his theory created new headaches, as Maxwell’s theory was incompatible with Newton (Einstein’s... [More]

Geoengineering: Messing with the Climate to Counter our Current Mess

Our climate is changing, with human emissions of greenhouse gases being the major contributor. While mitigation should be our main goal, we may need to turn to interventionist measures one day. What sort of interventionist measures are being discussed under the heading of Geoengineering (or Climate Engineering)? Are they even feasible? Can we do it? Should we do it? Should we even research it? [More]
