    TEACH YOUR CHILDREN WELL

    More college students studying clean energy
    Leonard Anderson, March 28, 2007 (Reuters via Yahoo News)

    WHO
    U.S. college students, UC Berkeley energy professor Dan Kammen, UC Berkeley Haas School of Business professor Christine Rosen

    WHAT
    More American college students are choosing courses on clean energy technologies and environment-related subjects.
    - “The number of Berkeley undergraduates enrolled in introductory energy courses has almost tripled and a new graduate class in solar photovoltaics signed up 70 students, the largest course in recent memory at UC's College of Engineering.”

    WHEN
    According to Professor Kammen, there has been a significant and noticeable enrollment increase in these fields in the last two years.

    WHERE
    UC Berkeley, Stanford University, Middlebury College, Harvard University, Dartmouth College, Williams College, Illinois State University, and the University of California at Davis, among many others.

    WHY
    Students see venture capital moving to companies and jobs developing renewable and alternative energies. Projects such as nanotech solar cells and biofuels generated by enzymes and termites win funding. These young people see an opportunity to prosper and do good.

    QUOTES
    - "Students see an opportunity for challenging jobs and a way to do some good for the planet," Dan Kammen, an energy professor at the University of California at Berkeley, said.
    - "The environment is incorporated into every aspect of the world. The program gives you the opportunity to consider environmental consulting or working for alternative energies or corporate social responsibility," [Daniela Salaverry, a Middlebury grad who works on environmental programs in China for San Francisco-based Pacific Environment,] said.
