Prior to beginning this discussion, read Chapters 7 and 8 in your course textbook.
Imagine that you are a resident of Ashfordton, a community whose characteristics are described below. You have come together with your neighbors for a special meeting to devise a plan for helping the community become carbon-neutral by 2050, meaning that by that time, no net carbon dioxide emissions will be produced by residents as a whole.
Fortunately, you have all attended the meeting with knowledge that you have gained from your readings in this course. Now it is time to put your thinking cap on and get to work! Your plan should consist of the following elements:
Energy conservation measures (e.g., promoting carpooling by adding special lanes to local highways).
Steps to move toward sustainable energy production (e.g., installing solar panels on town government buildings).
Reducing energy consumption will help, but some actions will have to involve switching to other power sources for buildings and vehicles as well.
This week’s discussion will take place in an online app called Tricider. There, you will be able to post your ideas for plan components and share pros and cons of different proposals during the week. Finally, you will be able to vote on the three components that you think the plan should include.
For directions on how to use the Tricider app, please review the Tricider Help Guide. In Tricider. You will be expected to do the following:
Post at least two separate and entirely original ideas. Do not duplicate ideas already posted by your peers.
Include your full name for each one.
Post at least six different pros and six different cons for the following:
I would recommend using gas efficient or electric automobiles. This would cut down on the emissions. Due to the weather conditions, the idea of utilizing greenhouses are very good ideas. The town can keep the cost low when it comes to buying supplies from a different consumers.
Building an electric trolley would help with not having so many cars in the area and a added bonus to transportation

The community of Ashfordton is located at the base of a mountain, on a secluded
ocean inlet, surrounded by rugged, forested land covered with spruce and fir
trees. The only access to the city is by ferry or plane; no roads connect it to other
communities in the region. Winters are wet, mild, and long, with limited sunlight
due to its location so far north. The city serves as the capital for the state of New
Grammarly. The city is renowned for its scenic beauty; tall mountains capped by
glaciers can be seen from the downtown. Tourism is a significant source of
revenue. Fishing is still important to the community, although it is an occupation
for only a very small fraction of the city’s residents.
