Read out from 2012 Environmental Priorities Legislative Workshop

This years Washington State Legislative Workshop was a bit of a downer for me, but after follow up with some organizers I feel more hopeful.  

The bad part was that the representatives who were there to speak on behalf of the environment were mostly concerned with securing transportation funds (2 billion $)  this legislative session and flatly stated that there would be no band width to talk about Climate Change.  Though one legislator said he opposed the Coal trains, he also said…

Essay writing

In the visual arts, an essay writing is a preliminary drawing or sketch upon which a final painting or sculpture is based, made as a test of the work's composition (this meaning of the term, like several of those following, comes from the word essay's meaning of "attempt" or "trial").

The fuel in this case is the abundantly available sunlight. Hence, the solar PV systems installed in homes are sufficient to meet most of the electricity needs. Moreover, the…
