Re-Evaluation and Recommendations for Redesign of the World Trade Center : Final Report
After the collapse of the World Trade Center, Towers 1 and 2, several questions were raised about the fire protection, egress and emergency evacuation systems. Full engineering services were provided to analyze the design of these systems to investigate what improvements can be made to keep the buildings standing longer, which could have saved more lives.

1.1.1 Where do we get our energy from?

The world's current energy systems have been built around the many advantages of fossil fuels, and we now depend overwhelmingly upon them. Concerns that supplies will 'run out' in the short-to-medium term have probably been exaggerated, thanks to the continued discovery of new reserves and the application of increasingly advanced exploration technologies. Nevertheless it remains the case that fossil fuel reserves are ultimately finite. In the long term they will eventually become depleted and

Human Suffering and Humanitarian Emergencies [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Craig Calhoun | Humanitarian emergencies are not simply brute facts, appealing directly to our emotions or our moral sensibilities. They are one of the important ways in which perceptions of human life, sympathy for suffering, and responses to social upheaval have come to be organized in recent decades. Like nations and business corporations, they are creatures of social imaginaries, but no less materially influential for that. They are shaped by a history of changing ideas
