Motivating Issue

Energy efficiency and conservation. This is not a “left” or “right” issue. It benefits everyone.

Why I Belong To MEIC

MEIC’s stand against coal, and its role in climate change. They take an uncompromised stance, and someone has to do it.

What I Want To Pass On

I hope we see the light on putting some restraint on what we do. We shouldn’t do things just because we can. We need to change that mindset.
