Like the 1Sky Platform? Vote for it.

1Sky is based on three pillars: create 5 million new Green Jobs, start a firm Moratorium on New Coal, and reduce emissions to 30% below 1990 levels by 2020 and 80% by 2050. Focus the Nation’s Choose Your Future Vote in January will present millions of voters with a menu of global warming policy solutions, including those and more.

Focus the Nation’s combination of education, civic engagement and action is without precedent. On January 31st, the nation-wide teach-in will include tens of thousands of professors from all disciplines focusing on global warming solutions for America.

Organizers in all fifty states are inviting hundreds of Senators and Representatives to participate in Green Democracy, a carbon-neutral platform for DC-District engagement on global warming policy solutions. From a room in the Capitol they will sit down in front of a computer and video-chat with their constituents on campuses across the country.
The culmination of the event is the nation-wide vote on policy solutions. What do you think we should do about global warming? Should we invest in so-called “clean coal” or real clean energy technology? Should we create new nuclear reactors or new green jobs? Should we make our cars cleaner or transition away from cars altogether?

You all have strong opinions on what the solutions should be. Make them heard, and start 2008 with solutions in mind.
