Hi Dan - I'm located in Paris right now and I'm amazed by some of the things that the Europeans are doing that the Americans don't do - things as simple as hallway lights that only go on when you press a button-- then they only stay on for 5 minutes before they turn off. Can you imagine how much power we would save if every office / residential building in Manhattan made that simple change?

Dan, I find the post impressive. However, I would like to add a few things here. All green programs apart, the world needs to unite against the menace of global warming. It has evolved into unmanageable proportions and further sidetracking of the issue, may put the entire world into a major risk of future existence. And, offcourse there is the added advantage of getting the much desired greenbacks, by greening the earth. Let us do it, irrespective of where we are located.



Great blog, Dan, and I totally agree. I'm a bit concerned about Obama's claim, only because I visited the National Renewable Energy Lab in November (hidden almost as much as Cheney's bunker during the past 8 years). They said that the problem with renewable energy is the most solar access, wind, and some other sources are in the west. The majority of needs are in the east (and midwest). So being able to implement and transfer this energy is the big trick But good for your son, and as you say, all it takes is one step at a time. Thanks for writing!
