Letter to the Editor, by Garrett Blad In a letter to the editor on June 17, 2015, the day before Pope Francis released his encyclical on climate change and human ecology, University of Notre Dame President John I.

Solar Chat: Ryan Zariki, Whole Sun Designs

Meet Ryan Zaricki, founder extraordinaire of Whole Sun Designs in Wadesville, IN. He grew up knowing that you don’t swim in the Ohio River, you don’t eat the fish, but that never sat right with him. After attending Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, he headed out to Colorado and worked in green buildings, learning skills in sustainable trades, thinking more critically about electricity and water. He was having fun. His dad needed his help building a house, so he found himself back in Southern Indiana, and he worked for another solar contractor for awhile, moving back and forth...

Solar Chat: Rectify Solar

Phil Teague was a young man working for Marathon Oil. The bills were getting paid and he was earning a decent living. Then one day he learned about the Alberta tar sands oil and its potentially huge environmental impact. He decided that while the paycheck was nice, he couldn’t live with himself in his job. Thus was born Rectify LLC. Phil with his two brothers formed the company in 2013 to promote solar energy. Based in Indianapolis and Boonville, they perform energy audits and install solar panels as well as vehicle charging stations.  Phil is now a Board Member of...

The recent graduate of Notre Dame is riding his BICYCLE. To Paris. With one big goal in mind. He and his friend Morgan are headed to the United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP21, this November, an event so important to the future of our planet that it merited a journey of this scale.
