Rajan Gupta said he used to talk about the connection between energy needs and climate issues with the idea that it was something that must be addressed by the next generation.
After his talk Wednesday, the second in the summer lecture series primarily for visiting students at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Gupta said he no longer thinks the problem can wait.
He urged the students not only to engage what he calls the “global grand challenges” now, but to go back to their labs and offices and clamor for those people to get busy working on the problem, too.
A theoretical physicist, whose day-job at the laboratory takes him deeply into fundamental theories of elementary particle interactions, Gupta is also one of the scientists most deeply committed to global challenges of poverty and development.
“Pure enthusiasm,” Tomasz Durkiewiez, one of the organizers of the series, described Gupta in a couple of words, explaining one reason he was asked to participate in the lectures.
“He is picking up on climate issues, because of his own needs and interests, to develop something important for the lab,” said Durkiewiez. “He has fresh, original and interesting ideas.”
