Among the Questions: Is Climate Change an existential problem?  What are the consequences of Climate Change? Can Climate Change be mitigated? Why is there only matter in the universe? What is a “fined Tuned” universe? What is Dark Matter? What is Dark energy? What is the hierarchy problem? What is inflation?  And other puzzles that we come across.
