The global warming
crisis is part of a bigger transformation in which humanity realizes that the
Earth is a finite system and that our population, energy usage, and the like
cannot continue to grow exponentially. While politics and economics pose the

transition a bit easier. After a quick review of the problems, we discuss a few
ways physicists can help.
