Hang on there is hope

Editor: For National Climate Change Day the Lakes Clean Water Coalition had a table at the mall.


For National Climate Change Day the Lakes Clean Water Coalition had a table at the mall. As part of the display I was involved in making a collage of alternatives to oil.

As I searched the internet for pictures, I was totally amazed at how many alternate energy projects are being successfully carried out both in Canada and around the world.

You name it, hydro, wind, solar, electric, biomass, tidal, geothermal. Cool cars, trucks and buses running on solar, water, hydrogen fuel cells, electric, alternate oils.

Many countries and communities are becoming independent of fossil fuels, Germany, Denmark, Iceland for example. We need to encourage our government to put the same subsidies they give the oil companies into these viable alternate energy projects, so that we can live in harmony with nature and leave the legacy of clean air and water for our children.
