Sustainability and affordability can go “hand in hand.” That’s the opinion of an expert with Habitat for Humanity of Iowa.
Dr. Peter Schwartzman shared his optimistic view of a future without fossil fueled energy as the keynote speaker at Western Illinois University's 9th annual Environmental Summit.
He said local activism is contributing to the popularity of renewable energy alternatives.
He said, “There are opportunities all around us. We have roofs that don't have solar panels. We have fields of growing food that could easily take on a wind turbine with marginal loss of production.”
