« John Hall, Environmentalist, For Congress | Main | Act Locally: Ten Steps Toward Sustainability -- Step 1 »


John Freeland

Wouldn't it be something to have leaders in our government who'd stand up and educate the citizenry about great energy opportunities like this one out in Cucamonga? Imagine a president or governor or congressman spending an hour on prime time getting the country "fired up" about new technical and legal-contractual instruments to put projects like this on the ground and get serious about sustainable energy. Maybe I'm just living in a dream world. Y'think?

Thanks for posting. Yes, that would be wonderful, but you can see it happening all around the country on a local level -- e.g., Portland, Oakland, Minneapolis. Here in New York, things are moving too -- the city is initiating a major sustainability project, and counties like Westchester are on the verge of new efforts as well. What's exciting about all these efforts is that they are grass roots, coming from citizens who are taking back their governments and making meaningful change happen. It's only a matter of time -- and a short time maybe too (Gore in 2008?) -- before some major national officials start taking real leadership for change.
