I’m not just talking about natural resources or fuels. Do we have the political resources and energy to solve our most pressing national problems: namely global warming, air pollution, and energy insecurity.
While it is clear that our elected representatives don’t have the political resources or energy to tackle these problems, a group called The Solutions Project has decided to take matters into their own hands.
We’ve all heard the naysayers and propagandists who claim that we don’t have the technology to replace fossil fuels with renewable energy sources, or that it would hurt our economy, or cost too much money. So the group came out with a detailed, state-by-state plan for how we can completely transition to 100% clean, renewable energy. This is not just about technology, it also details the benefits, including how much money can be saved, how many jobs will be created, and even more importantly, the thousands of lives that can be saved every year by switching away from polluting fuels.
You can see an easy-to-understand infographic about their plan at their website. Just hover over your state, or click on it to see the benefits.
