Local Resident Featured on Nevada Public Radio

George Rhee's Energy Calculator, Boulder City, NV

In case you missed this, a couple of months ago local Boulder City resident and UNLV Professor George Rhee was featured on Nevada Public Radio HERE.

It seems that Professor Rhee has created a climate-change calculator to help those interested to evaluate and measure sustainable-energy technologies and how much they could reduce the use of fossil fuels.

It’s pretty amazing! According to the article here:

“When you go into this universe of renewable energy, people are very vocal about what they don’t want,” he says. “If you want to build a wind farm somewhere, they’ll say no. A solar farm, no. Nuclear power plant? No. But if we want to solve the problem, we have to make plans that add up … We’ve got to get off fossil fuels, because they’re going to run out. How do we do that?”

Rhee hopes that business leaders, government officials, and policy-makers will use his calculator to have serious conversations about renewable development.

As for his motivation, Rhee says the calculator isn’t for profit; it’s purely a passion project. “It is up to us to make sense of our lives by living responsibly and caring for other human beings, our communities, and the environment,” he says, “not just for us here today but also for future generations.”

Be sure you check it out, along with the link (in the article) that takes you directly to the calculator and gives you an outline on how it’s used! It’s a potential conversation-starter here in Boulder City, for certain.
