Yesterday, we blogged about New Hampshire-Vermont Schweitzer Fellow and Pierce Law Center student Daniel Abelson’s work to improve the health of communities via renewable energy initiatives.

Today, Pierce Law Center has posted a terrific online press release about Abelson:

In summer 2009, when Pierce Law student Daniel Abelson received an Albert Schweitzer Fellowship to work with the New Hampshire Office of Energy and Planning to expand the use of renewable energy in the state, some people wondered what renewable energy had to do with Schweitzer, the Nobel Peace Prize-winning physician and humanitarian.

And then they thought about it: Albert Schweitzer Fellows develop and implement direct service projects with a lasting impact on the health of underserved communities. Hmmm…Clean and renewable energy = less pollution and the reduction of global warming = a healthier world.

Read the full release here. Many thanks to Pierce Law Center, a sponsor of our New Hampshire-Vermont Schweitzer Fellows Program!
