Energy and the Environment: Home

This guide is for researchers studying the production of energy and its impact on the environment.


Welcome! This guide is for researchers studying energy extraction and use, and its impact on the environment. Here you'll find a number of recommended resources, from books in Yale University's catalog to e-journals and databases to government resources. The lists here are by no means exhaustive; rather they should serve as jumping-off points for your research. Please contact me with any questions.
