Now imagine if everyone thought of a new way to reduce humans carbon foot print on this planet. After reading this article in the Huffington Post I was inspired to do more to save our planet. How awesome is it that that a 12 year old originally thought of the idea of the green shield and made it a reality before he was 18 years old. The Green Shield is a ski jump shaped hat installed on the roofs of buses that improves fuel economy 10-20%. Reading articles like this remind me that there is hope for our future and not all teen and tweens are lost in video games. Now how do we get more kids to take summer classes at Northwestern University?
