OO India: Underlying Optimism Is Biggest Driver Of Consumption Growth 

OO A Vision for A Sustainable India: Get Over the Growth Fetish notes an Indian columnist.

All nations on this planet have unsustainable numbers of humans; we ALL need to have families averaging fewer than 2 children to bring those numbers down humanely. In the past, the average consumption per person of developed countries was driving unsustainability, while the sheer numbers of people in developing countries was doing so elsewhere… now, as consumption rises in developing countries, unsustainability is accelerating.  ALL nations have to confront this with humane family planning policies.

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here. This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
