美國地質學會 2015 J Price Presidential address

The world is changing. Our science is increasingly global, as we recognize the challenges of understanding interconnected Earthsystems, meeting the rising global demand for mineral and energy resources, handling tradeoffs regarding sustainable development, and reducing the risks of natural disasters that impact the global economy. The geosciences are vital to meeting these societal challenges. The future is bright for the geosciences, from many perspectives.

Demand is high for nearly every mineral and energy resource. This high demand  rovides many opportunities for geoscientists to contribute throughout the life cycles of these resources (from exploration and mining to reclamation and recycling) and to continually improve environmentally responsible and economically sustainable extractive activities.
