A New Reason to Hope-Restoring the Chesapeake Bay
Static Preview

Restoring our Waters is the story of how people around the country care about The Chesapeake Bay and are turning this caring into citizen action at the State (Maryland) and Federal level.

Like most of the bodies of water on the planet, it is the engine of a regional economy important and is a National Treasure, worthy of protection and deserving of the iconic status of the Florida Everglades, the Great Lakes, or the Mighty Mississippi. Americans who care about clean water, economic security, and national history are asked to sign  petition, and then contact their legislators to demonstrate how important the Chesapeake is to our nation. To participate visit the Restoring Our Waters Website.

Change the Way You Think by WWF
Static Preview

We live on a finite planet and sometimes our impact on it is greater than we realize. The seemingly isolated actions we take every day, from our choice of morning beverage to our choice of business practices, are often links in a chain of unusual connections we would never have imagined.

The bottom line: The health of business is directly connected to the health of the natural world. And both can grow and flourish—together.

Van Jones on Leadership
Static Preview

Green Economy pioneer Van Jones addresses the 2009 Bentley University/TIME magazine Leadership Forum. Jones, founder of Green For All and served as President Obama's Special Advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality. This is Part 1 of a 27-minute address where he addresses the three fallacies that tore the floor out from under the American people:  rely on consumtion, rather than production; credit rather than smart savings and thrift; and ecological destruction rather than restoration.

Since resigning from his White House post, Mr. Jones has been vilified in the press as a communist, fascist and racist. We recommend listening to what he talks about, rather than the talk about him.
