Stanford Students Answer Environmental Dilemmas from the Public
From whether barefoot running is green to the thorny conundrum of plastic versus paper versus reusable bags, our very own Pablo has answered many an environmental dilemma in his time. But he's not alone in dispensing sound, science-driven environmental advice. In fact Erin Craig of Terrapass tells us that graduate students at Stanford taking the upper division/graduate course "Sustaining Action: Research, Analysis and Writing for the Public" are required to respond to questions from the public in a regular column entitled SAGE: Sound Advice for a Green Earth. Recent topics range from the financial and environmental impact of high speed rail to the ecological implications of electric vehicle manufacture, and the answers are thoroughly researched and carefully explained. Awesome stuff.
