A monumental tug-of-war is raging between an elite small group of insanely wealthy fossil fuel pushers and a growing number of regular people that favour more enlightened clean alternatives.
This is one battle that the people will eventually win because our lives depend on severely curtailing the carbon economy. We can see that the tide is turning, regardless of what the MSM tells us (or doesn't tell us). Things are looking up for green energy.
Already there are more jobs in renewable energy in Canada than in the tars sands, the dirtiest oil source in the world.
Investment in renewable energy is up globally. Locally, my tiny town of Digby, Nova Scotia is becoming known as a centre for research and development in wind and tidal energy. Wind farms are popping up like flowers in the spring.
The municipality owns and operates a biodigester that processes biomass (including material from green household waste) to create methane used to generate electricity.
Increased investment in renewable energy is good news for the green economy, the environment, everyone's health, and future generations.
The future is bright... and clean - the transition has begun.
