Gordon Group Eliza Spear speaks on energy and greenhouse-gas emissions.

By Alvin Powell

For many, thinking about the world’s environmental future brings concern, even outright alarm. There have been, after all, decades of increasingly strident warnings by experts and growing, ever-more-obvious signs of the Earth’s shifting climate. Couple this with a perception that past actions to address the problem have been tantamount to baby steps made by a generation of leaders who are still arguing about what to do, and even whether there really is a problem....

How Christina Chang shifted from cold showers to tech development in her quest for a more sustainable world. 

By Caitlin McDermott-Murphy

Christina Chang

As a kid, Christina Chang was already a mini-sustainability activist. She recycled and reused. She turned lights off in empty rooms. She screened  “Captain Planet and the Planeteers” at her school on Earth Day. And, for two years in high school, she showered sustainability-style, turning the water on just long enough to get wet, then lather up, and rinse off under a quick burst of cold water.
