Consider Donating to my Research Program

I recently sent you a newsletter (link here to December 2015 Newsletter) links to some recent research that I made available in open-access journals. With very little seed money, and the great efforts of some students, we were able to create a database of country-level and world energy expenditures and relate them to important net energy metrics of the world energy industry.  Research dollars are leveraged highly to allow students to focus on research, provide them opportunities to attend conferences and enhance their professional expertise, and spread the word on our work that has relevance for explaining the role that energy plays in the past, present, and future economy.  We can't just consume our way to further growth and prosperity ... we need more clever solutions.

As 2015 comes to a close, please consider to donating to my research program that seeks to bridge the gaps between economic and energetic thinking using a systems perspective. 

Click here to donate via the University of Texas at Austin's giving page. Enter "King Research" in the box to the lower right of the page to ensure your funds reach my account:
If you do not donate to my research program, please consider donating to other programs and organizations that are truly seeking to transform our way of operating our world in a more equitable manner with fewer environmental impacts.  As a show of my giving at the end of this year (which includes my birthday in late November!), I have made gifts to and requested donations to (in lieu of gifts to myself) C.A.R.E, Water.org, the Post Carbon Institute, and Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas - USA.

Thank you, and Happy Holidays.

My research takes a systems approach to describe the role of energy and energy technologies in our past and future. This approach provides the best way to both address questions about our future economy and environment as well as understand how individual technologies can and cannot affect the macro-scale and long-run trends that will frame our future options. I seek understanding of the relationships among:
  • energy resources and technologies,
  • population demographics,
  • water and food,
  • macroeconomic factors, and 
  • implications of internalizing environmental externalities.
