Well the last couple of weeks or so I have had some presentations to do in my English class. The first presentation I talked about our team, and what were doing to help start Global Cooling. I started off on talking about how we try and make the races in Colorado zero waste. I also gave the class a couple of tips on what they could do, even if it was only in there rooms. The easiest way the class thought they could help out is to start recycling and actually use the recycle bins around campus. My professor really liked what our team is trying to do and now does not let us use the trash can and makes us recycle during class. Also, I let them know to ride there bike or walk when ever they can. There is no reason to drive and put Co2 into the air especially when it’s only less than two miles. I found this really cool, because going to class now I see some of my class mates riding there bikes to class instead of driving. I also let them watch a clip on what Cyclocross really is. A lot of them had never heard of it and found it really interesting. My next presentation was just last week over Global Warming. Sure the class has heard of it, but most of them did not know how bad it is already. And a lot of them had no idea that we were contributing to Global Warming that much. These presentations were fun to give, because I got to teach people on this issue and I learned a lot more information in the process.
