Energy and the Atmosphere

In this episode of Spark Science, we discuss what physicists mean when we say “Energy”.  Our guest is a physics professor and Associate Dean of the College of Science and Engineering at Western Washington University, Dr. Brad Johnson.  We talk about changing the dialogue of “Global Warming” and thinking about stored energy in the atmosphere.

Enjoy this short crash course in energy conservation, phase change, randomness and air quotes.
