We are three students at Mount Holyoke College who are passionate about environment. As part of the Environmental Economics class (ECON203) that we are taking this semester (Spring '14), we created this website to present what we had learned about energy in terms of economics and environment.
This website aims to raise awareness about some major economic and social issues of energy production and consumption in the US and worldwide, as well as provide a detailed look at three main sources of renewable energy--hydro, wind, and solar. These sources of "green" energy can become solutions to the issues that conventional sources, i.e. fossil fuels, are causing.
We would also like to propose some ways in which individuals and communities can do to conserve energy.
