JACKSON, Wyo. — Jackson Hole Center for Global Affairs has invited associate physics professor Robert Davies to give a free talk titled “Energy & Growth in the Age of Humans: Finding our way to a sustainable, just, and vibrant world” tonight at the Center for the Arts.

According to Dr. Davies research, economic growth will soon end, and “understanding this fundamental truth is the key to forging a path to a sustainable, just and vibrant humanity.”

According to Utah State University, as a physicist, Davies’s training has been in atmospheric physics, surface physics and quantum optics, but his work over the last decade has been in critical science communication, principally focused on global environmental change and sustainable human systems.
