We're about 6 weeks in to the 2009 Climate Corps program and this year's fellows have been busy already. Several of them are blogging, about everything from the absence of low-hanging fruit, demystifying energy bills, keeping a green building green, what they learned in energy efficiency training and more.
From San Jose to Houston to Philadelphia, the media is taking notice of this year’s Climate Corps fellows. Check out these profiles:
- Sarah Shapiro’s work at Cisco, as reported in the San Jose Mercury News;
- Lindsay McCombs, David Fox and Sahil Thaker’s efforts to save energy and money in North Carolina’s Research Triangle, from The News & Observer;
- Ryan Whisnant’s top-down and bottom-up work with SunGard and Andrea Sandor and Christopher Anderson’s work with Ahold USA companies Stop & Shop and Giant Food as chronicled by the Philadelphia Inquirer; and
