Switching Us On?
Robert Shields asked about "turning EVERYTHING into a clean energy power plant and linking them together into a distributed clean energy grid." I'm not exactly sure what that would entail, but we are looking into the idea of distributed neighborhood energy — you can see one example in Portland's Sunnyside neighborhood.
And Crystal Burgoyne wrote in with her own addition to The Switch:
What continues to come to mind is the real need to live more simply. I think a show about the simple living movement would be very interesting and engaging. For me, 'Going Green' doesn't mean 'Buying Green,' it means not buying what I don't need. I think you would find there are a lot of people in Oregon feeling the same way.
Is the green movement — in concert with the recession — changing your consumer habits in a significant way? Do you think the changes will outlast the economic downturn?
