Forgotten Fundamentals of the Energy Crisis
University of Colorado at Boulder
Negative Population Growth is indeed privileged to be able to reprint "Forgotten Fundamentals of the Energy Crisis" on the 20th anniversary of its first publication in the American Journal of Physics in September of 1978. Since then, it has been reprinted in full or abridged in over 30 different publications or proceedings, including translation into Spanish for publication in Mexico. The special importance of this article as a resource for educators is reflected in its use in several introductory physics textbooks, in the "Physics Teachers' CD-ROM Toolkit" published by the University of Nebraska, and in the United Nations Educational and Cultural Organization's journal New Trends in Physics Teaching.
