E105 Energy Issues in Our Future
A. D. Bacher   Fall 1999
World Wide Web Links

 
       The following links are provided to a few WWW sites related to energy issues and physics.  This is a brief introduction to an abundance of information that is now accessible on the Web.

       The Web has been described not only as a source of information, but also as a source of  misinformation. Travel this super highway with caution! You must develop your own sense of  critical evaluation as to the nature of the information you find by considering such criteria as:  the nature and reputation of the source, whether the report is based on scientific investigation or rumor,  and whether the intention of the source is to disseminate information responsibly or to advertise a product.  Have a nice trip on this highway of discovery.  Please let me know by e-mail if any of these links doesn’t work or if you discover new and/or even better sources that we can share with the class.
