Sustainable Economic Development? Green Jobs? Hawai'i? All... - Ecopreneurist

Hawai’i relies on oil for 90% of its electricity, imports 85-90% of its food, and has an economy largely dependent on tourism and the military. Hawai’i is blessed with ample sun, great climate for growing, steady trade winds for wind energy, and geothermal reserves that rival the world’s best.

Scott would like to see those trends reversed! In this game, players win by investing wisely, navigating the unpredictable nature of public policy, and producing the best “Triple bottom line” return on their investments.
