Alternative Titles for Energy Ambitions

The working title of the textbook, as students saw it in Winter quarter 2020, was Plotting a Path: Assessing and Accommodating Physical Limits. The students were given an opportunity to suggest book titles. Just for fun, this list captures a healthy sampling of what they came up with. The contents are roughly ordered from solid descrptive titles to more "fun" variants toward the end.

The ultimate title became: Energy and Human Ambitions on a Finite Planet: Assessing and Adapting to Planetary Limits.
