This evening Solar Road Trippers Jamie Nemecek, Amanda Nelson, Jean Altomare, and I presented as part of the Lapping Lecture Series (click link for podcast and presentation slides). As we finished presenting our involvement in the 350.org campaign that led us to DC and a meeting with White House staffers, Jean’s phone rang. Our old buddies from 350.org wanted to remind our Unity student Road Trippers that the President is taking video questions following this evening’s State of the Union address. Jean and Amanda promptly put together this message. A fitting follow-up to their White House visit last fall.
