Summary Focus on Sustainable Energy: Ages 11-14
Watch your words! What is “sustainable energy”? First of all, it is energy that is “renewable” (solar, wind, geothermal, etc.) – but that is only half the story. To be sustainable, an energy source must not exhaust natural resources, such as rare minerals, or rely on overly costly, hard-to-recycle equipment to generate power. Put simply, close attention needs to be paid upstream and downstream, while avoiding waste at all costs.
