    Electricity Generation Learn More about Micro Wind
    Micro turbines can be placed on large structures to take advantage of stronger, steadier breezes. The Eiffel Tower now sports vertical axis turbines that produce electricity for use on site. Where could micro turbines potentially be installed in your city?

    I'm wondering more how ALL new construction in our town could call for wind (and solar) options for electricity. Or at the very least, all new commercial construction.  
     I think the micro climate, especially off the bay, would yield a good supplement to the grid.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    In your opinion, what contributes to people in North America eating more meat than any other countries? What does this say about North American values and ways of living?

    I'm inclined to believe that America's history of "abundance" may have led to the overconsumption of meat products.  And the availability of fast food has encouraged this attitude.
