July 9th, 2010 – The voices of a new clean energy future

LompocRecord.com“America Must End Oil Addiction”

By Chuck Arnold, pastor at Valley of the Flowers United Methodist Church

 “So it isn’t that the president has not acted, it is that a whole lot of people, making money from gas and oil, don’t want him to act.”

 “The fact remains, to minimize the impact, our consumption — yours and mine — must be chopped. One consequence — it means we will have to pay more for gas. I don’t like that any more than you do. We will however, have to do it, if we truly intend to reduce consumption and end our dependence on foreign oil.”

 The Huffington Post“The Banks Strike Back”

By Carl Pope, Chairman of Sierra Club

 “The banks — perhaps concerned about the competition from low cost, public financing of my home upgrade — have just thrown a huge monkey-wrench in America’s vision of green jobs and a clean energy future. Some parasites — like lamprey eels — never let go.”

 “Now the question is: will Congress and the White House let the banks protect energy and carbon waste with their usury, putting the banks back in charge of our economy?”
