This semester students worked on creative projects. Most projects were websites or children’s books that were sent to Tom’s daughter to share with her classroom. Students also created blog posts, videos, and more.

Podcast by Aaron Gregory: How Sustainable is the Clean Power Plan?
The goal of the clean power plan is to cut power plant emissions by 20%, this means some states have more work to do than others depending on their energy sources. If this is upheld by the supreme courts no more coal-fired power plants would be built and many would be retired. Natural gas is likely to be the replacement; this is a start but it is still relying on carbon-emitting energy sources. We need to rethink the way this plan is implemented and use more carbon neutral energy options.
