Brief excerpt from interview: He wanted us to not just the answer the questions that were based off articles, not just regurgitating, but dig in deeper. he wanted us outside sources, to get the overall message . . . I had experience with the topic of climate change in American history class . . . We're in a zone that is prone to flood by tsunamis and sea level rise . . . connecting what i learned to what i see on a daily basis . . . animal science you focus on agricultural, animals and production of those species. And that applies to climate change and thus renewable energy because we're trying to find ways to reduce our carbon footprint. And livestock animals actually have the biggest carbon footprint out there ... the amount of resources, the amount of feed that goes into them.
