Physicist Nando Tolboom noticed that people find it difficult to access problems with numbers. As numbers play a vital role in the energy transition, he believes that we should develop some gut feeling to ask ourselves: Does it make sense what someone is claiming? Look no further, maybe peanut butter is a step towards the solution! The energy transition, a daunting task you might say. Well, hopefully Nando can give you some guidance using peanut butter. Nando Tolboom is a researcher at the University of Twente and as a physicist, he loves numbers large and small. During many discussions people find it difficult to access problems with numbers. As numbers play a vital role in the energy transition, people should develop some gut feeling to be able to stop, think for a second, and ask themselves: does it make sense what someone is claiming? Nando is actively involved in helping universities in becoming more sustainable and encouraging them to communicate their sustainable goals better. However, the numbers used to communicate these goals pose a challenge to many. To make these numbers more relatable we are going back to our breakfast table and look at how peanut butter can tell us something about our energy consumption. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
