Greening the Ghetto

Here is a great article talking about alternative energy in community. In order to switch America's power from unsustainable to sustainable sources, we have to make it affordable and available to everyone. We have to get everyone interested and invested in the process. If we do it right, part of the reward will be improving our communities.

Greening the Ghetto
Elizabeth Kolbert, The New Yorker: "A few months ago, Van Jones, the founder and president of a group called Green for All, went to visit New Bedford, Massachusetts. His first stop of the day was the public library, where someone had assembled an audience of about thirty high-school dropouts. They leaned back in their chairs, hands in the pockets of their oversized sweatshirts. A few appeared to be stoned."
