Forbes.com recently featured a blog post written by University of Houston Energy Ambassador Alex Pankiewicz. Pankiewicz, who is double majoring in chemical engineering and chemistry with a minor in energy and sustainability, is the second UH Energy Ambassor to be featured on Forbes.com this fall.
Pankiewicz spent last summer teaching English in Wuhan, China. In his blog post “The Paradox Of China -- Rising Standards Of Living, More Pollution,” he shared his thoughts on the “tremendous amount of consumption and economic development in China,” which he witnessed firsthand during his time working and traveling through the country.
The University of Houston’s Energy Ambassador program is part of the UH Energy initiative.
