    Being a high school teacher, I try to bring the best climate solutions to my classrooms. Geothermal is definitely one of them. Also, in my conscious raising work in our community, I try to help (new) people network with those who are already using geothermal systems in their homes.

    There is a growing movement among large corporations to move away from fossil fuels. The RE100 is one such group that is committed to switching to 100% renewable electricity by 2050 the latest. I try to only do business with those companies that have the strongest pledges as part of the RE100 campaign. On a local...

    I noticed that in the assumptions made in the transportation sector, the projected EV share for 2050 is merely 16%. Global sales of plug in vehicles has already crossed 5 million in 2018. This was a 2.1% market share of new car sales in 2018. Some studies have  forecasted that sales of electric vehicles will hit 41 million by 2040, representing...

    I am lucky that I live in a town where nice trails are accessible. Walking is very much a part of the culture of our town. It made me wonder though as to how different would life be if I lived in a place where access to walking paths, especially in nature, was not common.

     Our city is a small one and the tallest building has 10-11 floors. I can envision a  turbine on top of it.  We have many small farms in our region and I believe that they would make good candidates for micro-turbine systems. We already have many community solar projects coming into our part of NY. I wonder how they would compete/complement...

    The most exciting solution still has to be nuclear energy. Perhaps I'm just biased, but I've always been fascinated that we can split atoms to produce energy.  Curiosity, the mars rover, currently has a plutonium reactor on board to power it. This shows how nuclear can be used in relation to space travel. And its a small bit of plutonium...

    Here are my trash, recycling, and compost logs for the week. I counted tissues, which made everything seem like a lot more. This is only my waste and not my family's

    Hi Wallkill. We are in week 2 of the challenge and I must say that you all are doing very well. Let's continue making small changes in our lives and watch the incremental power of these changes. Do not lose heart looking at teams with higher scores. Remember, we all live on the same planet.

    I found that I could have a big impact with necessarily making big changes to my diet but instead focusing on the sourcing of my food. Of course, I have the luxury of living in a place where that is easy to do. I am wondering how can we make it easier for many other people who may not have access to food sources that have low environmental...

    I transplanted a couple trees in my yard for my own interests. I also helped out with a workday at the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, in which we planted and transplanted natural and local trees and plants. Since hurricane Michael devastated the area, it wiped away much of the local, vital and beautiful flora. In my own yard, because my...
