Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Maine should lead Washington on climate policy
Bangor Daily News - 12/24/2013.
By Peter Mills and Sharon S. Tisher - It is fortunate for all 7 billion people on Earth that humans are finally learning new ways to produce and use energy. Examples are legion: hybrid cars, LED light bulbs, more economical wind, solar and hydropower, super-insulated buildings and fiber-optic communications to reduce physical travel and postal messaging.
