    Lick links economic growth, sustainable energy policy

    Andy Lick likes a challenge, and he has spent the last seven years showing that sustainable environmental policy and economic growth are not mutually exclusive. "My whole life I'd been told that the economy and the environment were opposing forces," the second-year La Follette School student says, "and my interest in energy policy grew out of challenging that assumption."
