The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently held the 2017 Solar Decathlon competition showcasing 16 teams from colleges and universities across the United States and around the world, building solar-powered houses that are affordable, innovative and highly energy-efficient. Participants included the University of Missouri's science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education efforts, dedicated to building a more knowledge-intensive workforce.”
The Climate Mobilization Victory Plan, written by Ezra Silk, is a policy document that tangibly demonstrates how the U.S. could eliminate net greenhouse gas emissions by 2025, contribute to a global effort to restore a safe climate, and reverse ecological overshoot through a massive WWII-scale mobilization.
