Why did you join KySEA?
Mountain Association for Community Economic Development Mountain Association for Community Economic Development

"MACED understands that systemic change in eastern Kentucky requires the government to be an effective partner in the development of the region. State government has the power to create the conditions needed for positive economic development to happen, turn demonstrations and local strategies into scaled programs, and remove barriers to social, economic and environmental progress. MACED seeks to advance a state policy agenda that supports green job creation, poverty alleviation and improved environmental and health conditions through investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy."

Organizational Mission:

LCAN is a network of organizations and individuals committed to fighting global climate change through education and advocacy.

Year Founded: 2007

Significant Accomplishments:

Provided presentations to over 2700 students, Sunday School class members, business people, civic groups, etc.  Each is customized to the audiences' interests and covers the science and impacts of climate change and some of the many steps that the audience could take to reduce it.  We've also maintained a blog on The C-J's web site on climate topics.  It had to be taken down while I ran for office, but I presume to resume blogging in September, if not August.  

 

"Louisville CAN joined KySEA because evolving from inefficient use of dirty fossil fuels to efficient use of clean, renewable energy is imperative if we're to stop over-heating our planet and ruining the state we love; that doing so would also create much needed jobs throughout Kentucky and stabilize our economy makes it the elegant solution to a lot of problems."
