Electric cars have more to do with global warming than you think. They are both involved with solving extremely large problems in the face of uncertainty. We are tempted to do research, look for silver bullets, or wait for issues to be clarified. But, the future will never wait. It will unfold in ways we cannot always anticipate.

Dr. Henry M. Pollack, author of "Uncertain Science, Uncertain World" has given us some useful characteristics of our future and strategies for dealing with this great unknown. Dr. W. Edwards Deming has bequeathed us much, including Plan-Do-Study-Act. These are two great sets of thoughts. They are rich veins of wisdom that can be combined. This presentation shows how they can be applied, and should be applied, to issues of great complexity and uncertainty. How we can, and must, move forward in the face of uncertainty. Move forward into the Unknown.
