Homework 1

Find an article online, or in a magazine, or in the technical literature describing an aspect of the impact of combustion on society. Write a one page paper (single spaced, 12 point font) on this article. Include in your writeup the title, author, and the basic idea of the article. You can include more than one source if desired. Possible ideas for discussion follow. What were the main conclusions? Do you agree with the main conclusions or aguments? Is there a consensus? What is the direct impact of combustion? Topics may include electric power generation, transportation, greenhouse gas emissions, pollutant emissions, home heating and cooking, wildland fires, etc. Your writing and style matters here, use a spell checker. Turn in your writup and a copy of the article, or a link to the online article.
