ces, week 26: It’s all about Energy

One of the ideas floating around the room lately has been, “It’s all about money.” The point being that environmental solutions are only tenable if they’re economically feasible. After a weekend of hiking, driving, talking, and paddling, I’m coming back to the idea that the money doesn’t mean a thing if we don’t have clean air, clean water, and clean soil. You know, natural capital.

This week we’ll begin to untangle one of the thorniest issues in environmental science: energy. We’ll keep things pretty close to the surface, but we will have an opportunity to explore transportation energy, and electricity generation. The focus here is on you, your behaviors, and the cumnulative effects of individual action. Like the little signs around ASFA say, “Little Things Add Up.”
