The enrollment in Dan Kammen's introductory energy class (Energy and Society: ER 100/200, PP184/284) exploded as USA Today reports. The number of students has risen from around 40 in the end of the the 1990s to 270 in 2009.

This follows a national trend mirroring on the one hand the great interest of students in the field of sustainability and renewable energies and on the other hand high expectations of future employers.
