Warning: strtotime() [function.strtotime]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

The goal of this lesson is for students to pick the site for a wind
farm in Massachusetts. Students will examine and synthesize a
variety of variables related to four different sites and then select
one of these site for the development of the wind farm. No site
is perfect, so students will need to make an argument as to why
they chose their location. Hopefully they will learn more about
the complexities that arise when making decisions related to
power generation.
