Why Clean Energy Now? Because Earth is Alive!

And it’s up to US to clean up OUR mess. Yes, it’s our responsibility to live as lightly upon Earth as we possibly can. We’ve got to do better than we have so far. 350 carbon emissions is a memory. We’re at 393 and rising. If we don’t stop ourselves from killing Earth no one else will. I’m not counting on aliens from outer space arriving in time to save us from ourselves. I’m not counting on some divine power intervening to spank us and put us on the right path. We’ve got to count on ourselves. WE’ve got to do the right thing or perish. And perish we will when the air, water and soil no longer support life on Earth. None of us can do everything, but we each can do all we can as soon as possible. Demand clean energy not more dirty oil. Germany is leading the world with shutting down nuclear power plants after learning from the ongoing disaster in Japan. Germany is going solar and wind. Why can’t the United States learn too? What are we waiting for? Extinction?

Want some WI Energy? Contact Gov. Scott Walker to make a deal.

Consider this a public service announcement. According to the Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s website “Wisconsin is Open for Business.”  Now it’s not clear exactly whose business or what sort of business, but judging from the information in Walker’s Budget Bill there will be an opportunity to purchase Wisconsin Energy operations via Uncontested Bids. Now if you’re interested  in getting your hands on some gas and electric providers in Wisconsin you’re going to have to run fast to beat the Koch Lobbyists to this governor’s sale. 

Walker’s site proclaims–>

“Feel free to contact us at any time.” 

email: govgeneral@wisconsin.gov

phone: 608-266-1212

address:  Office  of Gov. Scott Walker, 115 East Capitol, Madison, WI 53702
