Wind vs nuclear energy? No competition 12.10.2010 Green Left Weekly issue #780
Wed, 17/11/1993

Zane Alcorn

Wisconsin governor’s race: Barrett vs. Walker 11.10.2010 Grist Magazine
by Jonathan Hiskes. For a glimpse at the future of Wisconsin, look to the recent past of Milwaukee. The city’s mayor, Tom Barrett (D), is running for governor against Milwaukee County Executive Scott Walker (R). The two have disagreed plenty in the past, and their local clashes over clean energy and mass transit reveal just how sharply their visions for the state diverge. Walker, who has a six-point lead in recent polls , has drawn national attention for promising to block a new rail line that would connect Milwaukee to Madison, and eventually help link Chicago to Minneapolis. Walker wants to send $810 million in federal construction funding back to Washington—a move that a frustrated Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood compared to a state refusing to take part in President Eisenhower’s interstate highway plan in the 1950s.) Locally, Walker has fought for years against more funding for Milwaukee County’s bus system, which has been hit especially hard by the recession ...

What’s Next, Obama? 9.10.2010 WireTap Magazine
In the coming months, there are three major actions that Obama can take to ensure that the U.S invests in the development and availability of clean energy beyond just the solar panels on the White House. Obama must: #1- Lead the G-20 in removing fossil fuel subsidies from the federal budget and re-funneling those funds to clean tech programs abroad. #2- Move our country forward as a clean energy leader by doubling our wind capacity and matching China’s solar growth rate in the next year. #3- Commit to meaningful long-term contributions toward international climate finance in Cancun this November. If Obama wants to strengthen his position as a leader and is asking for young people to stand behind his agenda, he needs to start taking real action. We can encourage him to do so by getting started building the new green economy this Sunday and by getting vocal about our demands. One creative and significant way we can address Obama is through the MTV Town Hall Forum next Thursday, October 14th at 4pm ...

As White House Reverses Rejection of Solar Panels, 350.org to Hold 10.10.10 Day of Action on Global Warming 8.10.2010 Democracy Now!
Climate change activists are gearing up for a major day of action this Sunday with the 10.10.10 global work party organized by the group 350.org. More than 7,000 events are being held in 188 countries to urge people across the globe to do something in their city or community that will help deal with global warming. Meanwhile, the Obama administration has announced plans to install solar panels atop the White House’s living quarters, one month after the White House rejected a proposal by Bill McKibben of 350.org and students from Unity College to reinstall the White House solar panels used by President Carter in the 1970s.
