John commented on Can Accessible Information Prompt Action?

The right information presented in the right way is critical for the scaling of renewables. The last question you pose is especially poignant for communities emerging market other low economic zones. How do we make this kind of information more accessible to say, someone in Mississippi?

John commented on The economics behind renewable energy

Economists can still care! What we really try to do is understand and align incentives to induce change. The article you shared and Jes expanded on provides good data to understand part of the incentive structure for adopting renewable energy at scale. We can add additional structures on top of the hard numbers to get a big picture and a better idea of what motivates people outside our circles of influence. Good find.

John commented on The Rapid Packing Container

I love that video. You beat me to posting it! There is a lot of potential impact that packaging can have on recycling habits and I think these guys have a great idea.
