My energetic climate buddy Ben Jervey created a kickstarter! It’s an education themed project aimed to help folks understand where electricity comes from. Of course, it includes the impacts on the environment and tools to help fix the system. Donate a few bucks, reblog if you can. And follow askjerves:

So, here goes: yet another Kickstarter plea. I’m working on this pretty big project with the incredible folks at Focus the Nation, and we need dough to turn a basic Energy 101 primer into a kickass interactive e-version. 

Anyone who knows me knows how much I hate to ask for anything (even clicks, let alone money), but I really, sincerely think this is a really important project. It’s the most exciting thing I’ve ever worked on, and I think that The Watt? An Energy 101 primer could be a super useful tool for climate and clean energy advocates. 

The basic mission here is to combat energy illiteracy. The basic reason is that you can’t advocate for something you don’t understand. 

So, please, if you care a lick about one of the biggest most fundamental challenges of our time, throw a few ducats our way. Promise to make it as awesome as possible. 

Thanks, Mike! Though I should say, it’s not just electricity. Energy in all forms. Watch the vid, which I think does a bang up job of explaining the scale of the project. 

Nice! We spy a few videos from our Energy Disruptors series, too.

This sounds like a very noble cause. Education is a key component to sustainability as well as to reducing human’s impact to Earth. 

Thumbs up.

Thanks, Bridgemen! And now we’ve got a new NY Times piece that agrees with you!
