Do Good, Do It Now (Please)

Experience: It’s a word that can either help or haunt you.  Everyone seems to be looking for experience, yet there are so many people without it.  It’s a catch-22.  You need someone to give you a chance (you having no experience) in the first place to…

Environment + Technology

By Todd Woody





After months of failed attempts in Congress to extend crucial renewable energy tax credits, the end-game came with lightning speed Friday afternoon: The House of Representatives passed the green incentives attached to the financial bailout package approved by the Senate Wednesday night and President Bush promptly signed the legislation into law.
