Four Seconds of Inspiration

Blog

Despite our best efforts, separating ourselves from nature is a fruitless endeavor. So long as we are made primarily of carbon, we are nature. So long as we breath in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide, we are nature.

As I sit down to write this post, I think my mood can be described best by the following: feeling a temptation towards philosophical musings of the sort that would come naturally to you if we were sipping Earl Grey tea surrounded by many leather bound books. And here we go….

Reflections on Laudato Si - Concluded

Blog

“Never before has the world had a document that so eloquently unites ethics and environmental stewardship. That is why Laudato Si was the most significant environmental event of 2015.”

“Show your work.”

Does that bring you back to your high school math class in a hurry? That phrase was a near-daily refrain in mine. It didn’t matter if you intuitively, or by sheer luck, got a math problem right. You also had to offer a proof as well. You had to back it up.

I had every intention of this post being a continuance of my thoughts on Laudato Si and what Pope Francis means to the environmental community. But then Friday happened and I had to write something else. I had to write this.

8 Tips to Help Close that Renewable Energy Deal

Blog

The benefits of clean energy are clear, but procuring renewables can often be a muddy process given up-front investments, long contracts, and the need to build consensus among various internal company departments.

GM’s first renewable energy project dates back to 1995 with landfill gas generation and its first solar array followed 10 years later. Now equipped with 106 megawatts of renewable energy at its global facilities and $80 million in savings as a result, the company shares some of the tips that help ensure a smooth procurement process.
