Brief excerpt from interview: After that course I do know more about Hawai'i, because our struggle here is imported energy. And we had to learn not only about what kind of renewable energy resources are being sought for the future, but also about every energy source that we have and have had . . . A lot of them seem ridiculous that we are still using them, and trying to get more of them--for example, oil, or nuclear energy. Why are we using nuclear energy when we can't store the leftover? People know that food has to be imported, but they don't think as much about energy. They could buy an electric vehicle, but they are still plugging it into their house, which runs off of oil. My parents have solar panels and mom drives a hybrid.
