Ciencias Básicas para o desenvolvemento sostible

As temáticas son moi amplas: como se usan as ciencias básicas para unha economía circular? Como se usan as ciencias básicas para un desenvolvemento sostible? Como axudan a vivir nun mundo degradado polo cambio climático?

Poñemos un primeiro exemplo de libro imprescindible The Physics of climate change  de Lawrence M. Krauss.
