Faculty Fellow Talk

Tom Haines is an Assistant Professor of English. Walking to the Sun documents six walks the author is taking across landscapes of fuel in America to explore our pressing need to shift from carbon to non-carbon fuels. Step by step, while moving from oil, gas, and coal, to wind, water, and sun, the journey examines at ground level the scale of our consumption and our evolving relationship with the natural world.
