My true loves are Ethnobotany and Automotive. When teaching Automotive A/C and Electrical, my goal is touch on both of those topics. Showing the students that the Automotive field takes responsibility for a lot of pollution, excessive waste, and our overall carbon footprint. Hopefully this will make the students want to try to do their part in recycling and reducing wastes, which can only be good for our ‘aina and for our future generations.
