This is Gabe. Gabe is getting ready for a day of class. Just like all of his peers, Gabe uses quite a bit of energy every day.
It’s the TED Radio Hour from NPR. I’m Guy Raz, and this is Greta Thunberg.
I was 16 years old. I come from Sweden, and I want you to panic.
And Greta wants us to panic because our time on this planet is running out.
Gabe wants you to be aware of how much you use and where it comes from. Gabe loves our planet and cares about energy consumption because of its impact on the climate crisis. He is surprised at how much energy all of Middlebury College uses. So, Gabe wants you to listen up.
You’re listening to Mid Moment. I’m Laurie Patton.
By 2028, we aim to have our core campus powered 100% by renewable energy, reduce our energy consumption by 25%, and have a robust faculty-initiated experiential curriculum in place focusing on energy use.
And make a commitment to Energy 2028.
