Better Thermoelectric Materials for the Weather

“If you don’t like the weather, just wait a minute” and “Texas has four seasons, drought, flood, blizzard and twister,” are colloquialisms that well characterize the state of Texas weather. 

As Texas covers a large geographical area, the variations in weather or climate can be significant.  What about the variations in weather across the United States, or around the world?  And how about global warming?  Is it real?  Is it something we need to try to affect?  What are the facts and whose facts are correct?  While we at II-VI Marlow may not have the answers to the global warming questions and/or be able to solve the global warming issue with thermoelectrics, we certainly can assist the scientists and climatologists that are working on this issue.
