Richard York, professor, Sociology and Environmental Studies
York is as an environmental sociologist who advocates a multi-faceted approach to environmental solutions. He studies national trends to explore the connection between energy consumption and energy intensity – the amount of energy required to produce a dollar of product. His work involves compiling large quantities of data and running statistical queries. York believes neither alternative energy nor improved efficiency is the answer to the oil energy crisis, advocating instead for a “societal reorientation in our thinking” around what constitutes happiness or wealth.
