Profile Information

How are you personally leading to advance clean energy in your own life?
My professional work is in the field of renewable energy development; I volunteer as the Executive Director of the Climate Chante Leadeership Institute; my family has solar panels on our house, we drive hybrid vehicles; I dry my clothes on the clothes line; I try to consume less; I strive to live sustainably in many other ways too but I have a long way to go!

Description of My Revolution:

From Labor Day to Thanksgiving – to encourage US Climate Leadership – I biked 6,000 miles around the eastern half of the United States, speaking at universities, schools and communities along the way, drumming up local media attention behind climate stewardship and gathering a petition which I delivered to Washington DC before a major international conference on the matter. I paid for this journey by selling my pick-up truck; I rode a mountain bike with a purple back-pack bungy corded behind; I slept in baseball dug-outs and corn fields along the scenic back-roads; I got to know the down and dirty, bounty and beauty of America and the hospitality of our people…and after it was all said and done I met the lovely woman who became my wife the very night I peddled home.

President Obama deserves credit and congratulations for spearheading leadership on climate change

His statement at Georgetown University was not just words or empty promises. He…

Focusing on positives and our possibilities

Among the skepticism that has abounded regarding the United States' climate and clean energy leadership, there are some remarkable glimmers of hope of late that are worth not only acknowledging but giving our energizing attention to - as follows:

(1) The Federal Government and US Auto industry have established outstanding fuel efficiency standards over the coming decade(s) that will lead the world and effectively double our fuel economy to 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025. “This is truly…

in addition to 'Cap' activity... I'd like to see a groundswell of activity to get Fannie and Freddie out of the way of the PACE loan programs which most people need to install PV. One way to help is to take one minute and go to www.VoteSolar.org to let your US Congresspeople know how you feel.
