    The website is short and to the point, what i really like about this article is that it is easy to read, compared to the other "sustainability" websites that have so much jargon.
  •  
    this website was easy to understand and interesting all at the same time. It gives a run down on the technology that is being applied now to help the the sustainability within our environment. This is also gives a sneak peek into what technology that they plan to improve on and introduce hopefully within the near future.

    As you said and the article says energy is so important to us to keep life going. Creating a better source of energy would be a big advancement to help this cause. It is great that other cities are taking action to make a change.
  •  
    This article explains the importance of energy greatly, and the fact there is more to energy than "keeping the lights on". Energy needs to be sustainable for the future generations needs of energy, the need for energy won't go away.
  •  
    I tried to see what was important on this article but it wasn't very easy for me personally to grasp. I see that you 3 did find the point of the sustainability with electricity. I find it funny that we are always leaving lights on when we leave a room and think nothing of it until we are told it will save us money or that we are wasting something we really take for granted.
  •  
    This article states that sustainability and energy interconnect in many ways. I agree with Dominique we use energy for everything we do, but hopefully we don't take advantage of the resources we have now and end up leaving are future heirs high and dry.

    Although there are many resources needed for food production, the smallest gesture towards saving food is an improvement. We need to utilize the most food possible in hopes to reduce our wastage by at least 15 percent. Twenty five million citizens do not have the means to get food on the tables, they could be fed by giving what we don't use or don't need.
