Sign of the Times

The results are in, and here in San Francisco there was literally dancing on the streets. Barack Obama will soon be the 44th president of the United States!

It will take time to grasp the full meaning of this moment that historic on so many levels. Despite all the doom and gloom and the daunting challenges our nation faces, we strongly believe Obama’s presidency will be a transformative one in the areas of climate and energy policy.

After nearly a decade of government policies that cater to industry and put America's health and natural resources at risk, it seems we have, at last, turned the page, and entered a new era in our nation’s history. Barack gets it. And that is a good thing for the planet and for our burgeoning green economy.

In the end, the election of Barack Obama is a powerful and much-needed sign of hope for our country. Now the hard work begins.
