In honor of Labor Day yesterday, I, well, labored. Is that intuitive, or what? I did some touch up painting on our motor home, and other odds and ends. During a Labor Day cookout in Bluffton, Ohio, last night, I talked with a man who works for a local construction company. The company recently got a contract to help with a 300-unit wind turbine farm in nearby Paulding County, Ohio. When completed, it will be the largest wind farm of it’s kind in the state. And it is my belief we need to continue to promote these kinds of alternative energy projects, both here and around the world. When the Copenhagen Accords sputtered (no specific targets for carbon cuts), columnist Gwyne Dyer wrote that a final climate deal must be asymmetrical. That is, the industrialized countries should take deep cuts in their emissions now, while developing countries cap the growth in their emissions soon. This means that all the countries worldwide need to be stepping up their alternative energy pursuits exponentially — with the industrialized countries helping to finance, say, solar and wind projects in the developing countries. Note: I believe we must take global warming seriously and one of our brief position papers on this outlines part of our strategy for reversing it.
