Oklahoma State University Professor Jim Bose is using a device from the 1800s to conserve energy and save residents a lot of money. Bose explains how geothermal heat pumps may cost a little extra to install, but the long-term effects are well worth the conservation and economy stimulation.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
