You Have The Power Understanding energy and energy solutions is necessary if current and future generations are going to help solve our energy challenges.

Maps: What Energy Sources Power the World? There are many types of maps out there, but one of the most telling ones is a simple satellite image of the Earth at night. On these powerful images, the darkness is a blank canvas for the bright city lights that represent the vast extent of human geography.

The miners told of the rich claims they had staked one year earlier on a series of small creeks flowing into the Klondike River.
