Portland is a leader in the nation on all things sustainable. We even have "Vision" plans on how we can take this even further and become a sustainable city-whatever that mean!
Personally, I would like to see Portland become the worlds first fully sustainable city in the next seven years as a profitable example of how America can prosper as leaders of the fossil free world. A template of all things good and green.
I think we should fund our schools, government (and we can even pay for our transportation upgrades bridges, roads, and alternatives) by turning EVERYTHING into a clean energy power plant and linking them together into a distributed clean energy grid. This particular piece of infrastructure will enable us to deal with our waste and water issues thus becoming a sustainable lighthouse.
Fanciful dream or the future come a knocking?
Playing it safe and taking small measured steps is great in most cases. But when you have already stepped off the ledge and are in a free fall, then you need ALL your imagination, skill, and effort to learn how to fly.
