This is why social lending over the internet to help people invest in solar and wind if they are located in good areas for this is a powerful idea.I really wanted to champion this idea, so I purchased a number of domains and gave a couple of private presentations but I never really had the energy to invest in it that much. This idea needs a new champion and I need to exit and focus on other things.This is why I want to try to…See More

Free Idea - PERSONAL ENERGY LENDING

Many parts of Indiana have terrible resources for wind and solar energy - So what is the solution? One idea that I think will work well would be to connect people who are interested in lending money to those who do no over the internet and with social lending groups. I don't have time to execute the idea - I thought that I might, but since I do not, I have the domains for sale for just what I paid for them-  You take over the registration Information and I will support the…See More

Register to Vote - here with this easy online link!

If you are not registered to vote, or know anyone who is not, here is an easy to use online registration form.  I know it is often tough in Indiana to find a candidate who has any chance of winning who supports the environmental movement at all, but we MUST NOT give up and WE MUST try.  Often it comes down to choices of lesser evils, and while voting is great, campaigning for or against candidates is helpful also.   Getting out the vote for Environmental Progressives is also incredibly…

This is great!- Thanks to everyone involved!

I first learned of A Greener Indiana when I met - CEO Derek Reuter handing out cards at the Obama Community Meeting at Concord High School a few months ago. I had intended to sign up a long time ago, but I am so busy and it's just amazing how fast time flies.



Time is yet another limited nonrenewable resource that we must conserve with all of our might!



Thanks to Derek and everyone involved with this. It appears to be an excellent resource and we have much to do to help… Continue

don't have to be monkish. The Dalai Lama says if you practice compassion, cause no intentional suffering (to yourself or others), and engage in contemplation, than you're a buddhist. Being with nature is a great entree - that's what happened to me. Still working on it, but it's the practice and the path that count. Bet you have a good start
