UC San Diego professor of anthropology Thomas E. Levy, who directs the Qualcomm Institute’s Center for Cyber-Archaeology and Sustainability, spent a week in the Indian state of Telagana visiting 10 ancient sites, including one of the largest groups of ‘standing stones’ thousands of years old. Levy hopes to return with an expedition to document the little-known sites for digital conservation.

Creating a New Kind of Climate Warrior

Project Surya, introduced by Scripps climate scientist Veerabhadran Ramanathan, found that women in poor Indian villages would more readily replace traditional polluting cookstoves with new clean-burning ones if the women could be more easily compensated for using such stoves and the stoves were easier to repair. If the use of cleaner stoves were scaled up, a very large but relatively short-lived contributor to global warming could be substantially diminished.
