    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 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 each...

    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 too.Not...
