With each passing year climate change is becoming harder and harder to ignore, with more activists, celebrities, politicians, and others speaking up about the issue. This thesis serves two goals. The first to discover how even with a large amount of evidence supporting the theory of climate change, the American public has been very reluctant to fully embrace renewable energy. The second is to provide another opportunity to reduce the global carbon footprint through the design of a facility producing ethanol from corn.
