My Four Thoughts of Hope

The sun sets on 2015
The sun sets on 2015

2015 has been a good year for some environmental initiatives. While there is still a long way to go.  I have four stories from 2015 that create hope for the future of our planet.

  1. Microbeads: Congress passed and President Obama signed legislation banning microbeads from products. This is huge for our lakes, streams and oceans!
  2. Renewable Energy:  I have been thrilled many times this year as I read about new solar installations. Both wind and solar have entered the big leagues of energy.
  3. GMOs: Large manufacturers are starting to reject GMO ingredients.  While so far it might be just talk, it is a big change, thanks to the voice of the consumer!
  4. Paris Climate Agreement: Thanks to President Obama, President Hollande and the French negotiators we have an incredible beginning to deal with climate change.
