    How do we analyze green-tech solutions that are being marketed to us?
    What is the difference between measuring a product’s carbon emissions vs. its complete life-cycle assessment?
    What is the role of environmental offsets?
    How can our diets impact the global environment and how can we work to understand their affects on the sustainability, biodiversity, and natural areas of Maine?
