Deloitte Resources Study/Smart InfrastructureWhile the Trump administration might be turning its back on climate change, everyday people and business across the country are reducing consumption and supporting renewable energy. That’s from the most recent Deloitte Resources Study. Joining us is Marlene Motyka, US and Global Renewable Energy Leader with Deloitte. Our nation’s crumbling infrastructure is the topic of a lot of discussion. But what kind of infrastructure can we aspire to have? Recently at Cornell University, engineers tested smart utility pipelines that have the ability to adjust to and even withstand disasters like earthquakes. Brad Wham is part of the engineering team at Cornell behind the recent tests.
