We’re not doing nearly enough to address our climate and energy challenges, and this failure negatively impacts all of us. Take my word for this now, but I’ll show proof in the manifesto, which I’m writing from my perspective as a relatively young engineering professor. In this role, I stand between two groups. On one side are the decision-makers and on the other are the young people who I believe are our best chance for the rapid, fundamental changes needed to create a better future. I call this second group the “Sustainability Generation” and I think the new thinking we need to address these energy and climate challenges will come from the next young Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. Or from the next Marie Curie, who did much of her groundbreaking science research in her 20s. In this manifesto, I will explain why I’m convinced this is the case. More importantly, I will collect and share ways for us all to help the Sustainability Generation fulfill their potential.
About leidy: | Leidy Klotz is an engineering faculty member who developed and teaches courses in Sustainable Energy Innovation (see website link provided). He does research on related topics and, in 2011, received a CAREER award from the National Science Foundation, which is their award for junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars. Prior to becoming an academic, Leidy worked managing school construction projects in New Jersey. And before getting a real job, he played for the Pittsburgh Riverhounds professional soccer team in 2000 and 2001. Leidy and his wife, Monica, live in Clemson, SC where most of their climate-changing emissions come from traveling to visit family or the beach.
