Clean Jobs, Bright Ideas

I know there are certain groups of people out there who say global warming is a farce. No scientific evidence for it, they say. Fuck the polar bears, they say.

While idiots ignoring the effect fossil fuels have on our environment plunge their heads ever deeper into the sand, other groups, like the Alliance for Climate Protection, are fighting the good fight by encouraging a switch to cleaner energies, which means a cleaner planet, and fewer pissed off polar bears.

Repower Arizona, a project of the Alliance for Climate Protection, is just such an entity, and they’re holding a Clean Jobs, Bright Ideas Roundtable at noon, Tuesday, Sept. 22, at the Ward 3 Council Office at 1510 E. Grant Road.

The focus of the event is to raise awareness of the benefits that would accompany switching to a clean-energy economy. Guest speakers include Greg McNamee, author of Careers in Renewable Energy, Kevin Koch of Technicians for Sustainability, and Scotty Johnson of Defenders of Wildlife. David Schaller from the Tucson office of Conservation and Sustainable Development will also speak.
