There are really 3 issues that make renewable energy adoption difficult. Why don't we specifically tackle those 3 issues in a variety of ways? Anything not tackling these 3 issues is a misuse of resources. Cost is the first problem... a. Utilit

The benefits of using renewable energy at the expense of higher costs does not make sense for private companies.  It might however, if they were able to better monetize the positive PR they get from being a greener company.  Partnering environmentali

For the sake of being more specific, I have chosen the 3rd grade for implementation of this idea. These kids would be on average 8-9 years old. I have also chosen North Carolina as an example, since I live here.

More people would mean more power and making it a group aspect would lend further likelihood of repeat activity...crossfit proves this claim.
