Shift

August 31, 2008

If, like me, you’ve been watching the Democratic National Convention speeches on YouTube you must be impressed at the amount of space the energy crisis is getting.

It is the issue.

Governors and Senators mention climate change just about in every speech, their ‘addiction to foreign oil’, the high gas prices, off-shore drilling – it’s all about energy.

We could even call this the energy election.

Imagine if we had known that even two years ago – people are talking about renewables in a way we could only dream of! (Including some very unlikely, but welcome, characters!) Let’s hope American use this election to bring someone to the White House who has committed to ending oil imports from the Middle East within a decade, cutting CO2 emissions by 80% by 2050 and will lead the world in fighting my generation’s biggest threat: climate change.
