Born this day - Robert Boyle

Robert Boyle is regarded as the first modern chemist and a pioneer of modern experimental scientific method. Largely known for Boyles law (also known as pressure-volume law), states that the pressure of a gas is inversely proportional to the volume. This law is valid as long as the temperature and the amount of gas are constant.

In the same year, President Jimmy Carter issued a Presidential Proclamation stressing the need for comprehensive energy education in our schools, a reduction of our dependence of fossil fuels, and increasing use of renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency.
