Gosh it feels good to read the words of someone who holds office, (even just a Mayor or City Council member) but has their head in the right place with regards to our environment. Here is some of the text I am refering to. Please read the article at the link.
The mayor spoke about the Port’s permit in the context of calling for an “economy of the future.”
“To prevent the full force of climate change, we need not continue with the past,” he said. “It’s time to turn the page. Things like oil trains and coal trains and oil-drilling rigs are the past. It’s time to focus on the economy of the future. Clean energy, electric cars and transit, green homes and an environmentally progressive business community.”
