The overwhelming majority of scientists agree that the biggest source of human-caused climate change is greenhouse gas emissions. In the U.S., the majority of these gases come from burning fossil fuels, 29% of which are from transportation. The SCMAGLEV project is expected to prevent millions of tons of these gases from entering the atmosphere. In recognition of Earth Day, we’re taking a look at what these gases are and what it looks like when we prevent these harmful gases from being released.

My studies have me thinking about society in a broad way, how things are connected, and how we can work together to make progress.

Statistical data can be confusing, meaning they can be misused to distort information. It’s no wonder that many of us are either bored by, or don’t trust statistical data. However, statistics are all around us, and as humans we naturally perform statistical analysis every day. Statistics help us make sense of the world around us; we are constantly calculating the probability of future occurrences based on passed interactions.
