We can solve it

Most of us saw an Inconvenient Truth and we’ve heard plenty of dire news stories about the direction we’re taking things in the environment, but the question always comes up- “What are we supposed to do about it?”  Al Gore took his prize money from the Nobel Prize award and started the We Campaign to fill that missing link.  It’s meant to unite people and demand policy change in the government and businesses.  Brian Hardwick, the campaign’s communications director was quoted as saying, “Changing light-bulbs is good, but changing laws is better.”  The main things on their agenda right now is pushing for requirements to use 100% renewable energy sources within the next 10 years.   Under the take action tab on the website, you can add your name to petitions being sent to state governors, senators, and representatives.  They help you write letters to local papers & community leaders, & businesses.  You can search for ways to get involved in your own community & learn about more things to do to reduce your personal impact.  It seems like a great resource to help people everywhere get involved and take action.
