    Homework 3/30

    1. The key point in this last section is to stay vigilant and not get sidetracked by politicians and committees who say they are supporting green economy but still follow their earth consuming agendas.
    2. To help the public see through the backlash anti-environmentalists coalitions bent on pushing for fossil fuel expansion as the solution to energy prices.
    3. Find out if your mayor has signed the Green For All Pledge. this pledge requires local govt. leaders to Focus on green collar jobs as a central strategy for advancing environmental, economic, and climate protection goals. With emphasis on offering competitve salaries for green jobs that lead to a lasting career track, community based investments that cannot be outsourced, and direct contributions to preserving or enhancing environmental quality.

    My question for this week is this;
    With all this talk of political activism, and community based prosperity, what are YOU going to do about it?
