What do you get when you put together a scientist, actor, banker, and filmmaker who are passionate about renewable energy? You get The Solutions Project.
We are all starting to realize that integration between separate fields including media, culture, science, politics, and health is important for real change. The term holistic isn’t only applicable to personal health, it is intrinsic in culture. This understanding is what led me to start Culture Collective in 2005 with the help of Kathy Eldon and The Creative Visions Foundation. It is also why I am so excited about The Solutions Project.
The first solution on the agenda is 100% renewable, non-polluting energy and if you are still a doubter then you really should bite your tongue and check out their website. Addressing the issues from a cultural, economic, and scientific perspective is key to their approach. Not to mention that they have the media star-power to get the word out when the time is right.
Mark Jacobson, Mark Ruffalo, Marco Krapels and Josh Fox are determined to:
Demonstrate scientifically that using wind, water, and solar (WWS) to power our energy for all purposes (electricity, transportation, heating/cooling, and industry) paired with energy efficiency measures makes economic, health, and environmental sense.
Give you the tools to adopt renewable energy solutions that make economic and environmental sense for your family, business and community.
Highlight renewable energy projects and people doing great work – the transition is already underway!Have fun (Seriously, we’re going to have a great time …. you should join us)
Check out their interactive map “50 States, 50 Plans for 100% Renewable Energy” (all backed by scientific data from Stanford University) and you will agree that visualizing the transformation is a whole lot easier than you may have once thought. Feel free to join in the excitement and jubilation expressed in this short video starring Jason Silva. Oh and be sure to invite any of your friends who may be needing some liberation from overwhelm, self-doubt and apathy. Party is on!
