Renewable Energy Revolution Arrives

One of my favorite shows of 2014 was MSNBC's The Ed Show. I especially liked the March 5 episode when host Ed Schultz announced his change of heart on the Keystone XL issue, stating that "I was wrong," the pipeline should not be built.

Schultz continued his coverage throughout 2014 on this controversial issue, telling GOPs to pipe down after the Senate failed to pass the Keystone XL pipeline bill late November and sharing Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell's plan to make approving the pipeline his first order of business when the Republican-controlled Senate begins its session in early 2015.

Now, to finish off the year, Schultz in The Punch Out 2014 says the dangers of fossil fuels inspired him to re-think the way he was burning diesel fuel at his fishing lodge. Watch below as Schultz shares how and why he decided to go solar.

She is spending three days in Bluff, Utah, a small town just outside the monument, listening to representatives of the five tribes who first proposed its designation to President Obama in 2015. This is the same town where former Secretary Sally Jewell spent several hours at a public hearing in July 2016 before recommending the monument's designation to President Obama.

The coronavirus has isolated many of us in our homes this year. We've been forced to slow down a little, maybe looking out our windows, becoming more in tune with the rhythms of our yards. Perhaps we've begun to notice more, like the birds hopping around in the bushes out back, wondering (maybe for the first time) what they are.
