A number of analyses, meta-analyses, and assessments, including those performed by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and the International Energy Agency, have concluded that deployment of a diverse portfolio of clean energy technologies makes a(More)
state must reduce greenhouse-gas emissions to 80% below what they were in 1990, by 2050. Similar targets have been adopted in Europe, but the California goal is well beyond any federal policy taken on in the United States. Is it possible? What will it take to achieve it? For two years, I was part of a group of energy experts in California that tried to(More)
You call for stronger governance of climate-mitigation strategies that reflect the Sun’s energy away from Earth (Nature 485, 415; 2012). We see the scientists’ cancellation of a controversial field trial for the UK Stratospheric Particle Injection for Climate Engineering (SPICE) project (Nature 485, 429; 2012) as responsible selfgovernance in the absence of(More)
The recent enthusiasm for studying non-coding RNAs (Nature 496, 127–129; 2013) brings to mind a largely forgotten review article that I wrote almost half a century ago in Evolving Genes and Proteins (V. Bryson and H. J. Vogel (eds) 469; Academic Press, 1965). This review reached a conclusion that was judged to be profoundly heretical at the time. The(More)
We present a method for inverse modeling in hydrology that incorporates a physical understanding of the geological processes that form a hydrologic system. The method is based on constructing a stochastic model that is approximately representative of these geologic processes. This model provides a prior probability distribution for possible solutions to the(More)
