The thing the sixties did was to show us the possibilities and the responsibility that we all had. It wasn’t the answer. It just gave us a glimpse of the possibility.
There is hope if people will begin to awaken that spiritual part of themselves, that heartfelt knowledge that we are caretakers of this planet. –Brooke Medicine Eagle
Good News of the Day:
Across much of the developing world, the dinner hour comes with a billow of smoke. That’s because many of the world’s 2 billion people who live without electricity continue to cook with wood, dung, and charcoal. These solid fuels may seem cheap, but their hidden costs are quite high. Burning them sends carbon into the atmosphere, exacerbating global warming. And the indoor air pollution they cause leads to chronic, even fatal, respiratory disease. For 15 years, E+Co has demonstrated an alternative scenario. The nonprofit organization has grown a portfolio of 200-plus small companies that produce clean energy in developing countries across Africa, Asia, and Latin America. These enterprises bring modern energy to some 4 million people, off set more than 3 million tons of carbon per year. [ more ]
