Renewable energy is something I think Georgia and Atlanta can set it's eyes on. It would be a great investment.

Renewable Energy is a Siren calling investors in to its rocky shores. A lot of feel good promise but questionable payoff as an investment.

Not every sustainable energy project will end up like Solyndra. It is definitely an area worth investing in. What we are doing now for water conservation and agricultural sustainability is what we should have done for fossil fuels in the 80s.

I think the sun-grant program has really helped with sustainability efforts nationally.

Did you really just scold someone for linking to a cited Wikipedia article, and then link to a local news story about a magazine survey?

Wikipidea is properly sourced and monitored these days. I have used Wikipidea for graduate classes. It isn't all that uncommon.

It wasn't like I used it for a publication. Wikipidea is a handy source for quick details. The standardized format is great when you're looking for some quick information.

"But the annual conference also could lead to more research collaboration among the schools, said Ryan Adolphson, associate director of UGA’s Bioenergy Resources Institute and director of outreach for the UGA College of Engineering."

For all of those uniformed people in the GT to BIG 10 thread. Football conferences count.

I wonder if Georgia, Florida, TAMU, Missouri and Vanderbilt will be able to convince other SEC schools to step up academically. I think there's potential for Tennessee. The school has very well established graduate programs. Interestingly enough, this initiative was formulated by UGA's president, Michael Adams.
