CU Energy club presents Breaking Bad (behavior)!

Breaking Bad...

Why did people stop throwing trash out their car windows in the 60s? Why are fewer people smoking (it’s not for health reasons)? Why did the Prius catch on? How can we use social science to change behavior in the energy and transportation world? Bill LeBlanc will talk with the CU Energy Club about the power of behavior change programs and messages to help steer our national (and campus) energy use in a different direction. This will be fun.

Bill LeBlanc is the Chief Instigation Agent at E Source.
