Hey, so the lack of updates here can be solely attributed to the fact that I’ve been at Powershift 2009 all day Friday and Saturday. There are 2 mores day to go, including a massive lobby day on Monday. Basically to sum it up, 12,000 high school and college students from around the country are gathering in DC to network, train, have fun, and lobby Congress for bold far reaching climate change legislation. So far the even has been awesome with notorious speakers such as EPA Admin Lisa Jackson, Dept. of Interior head Ken Salazar, along with some Congressmen and environmental celebrities. Also, The Roots performed tonight. In case you want to read about what is going on at this conference and where you might fit in, check out the website below
