Repower America

Add your voice (or your picture and message as I did) to the Repower Wall.

What is the Wall? Former Vice President Al Gore explains:

We know that the political will to transition America to a clean energy economy already exists. You are part of it. But now we must make sure our leaders know it too. The Wall will become our collective voice and thus transform the debate into action.

Here is a post about sustainable mass transit on CalFinder Solar. Clean energy and sustainable mass transit. What great ideas!

Green Jobs Tour in Nashville

From the morning Tennessean on line:

The Made in America Jobs Tour is coming to Nashville today, with a town hall-style gathering, 6:30-7:30 pm, at Scarritt-Bennett Center (Laskey Building).The address is 1008 19th Avenue South, Nashville.

This is part of an effort to pass legislation before Congress that’s intended to curb greenhouse gas emissions to slow climate change.

Speakers include:
— Daniel Joranko of Green-Collar Jobs Task Force of Nashville-Davidson County
— Chris Ford of Tennessee Conservation Voters
— Alex Tapia of Southeast Energy Efficiency Alliance
— Stephen Rush of Outpost Solar, LLC

Repower America, the activist arm of former Vice President Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection, is a prime organizer of the tour.

The group says the legislation would mean many new green jobs – from weatherizing homes to building solar panels – which would be held by Americans, rather than going abroad.
