In Toronto

We are up here this week and will be focusing on some of this city's efforts to craft a cleaner, brighter future.  In fact, tomorrow I will be calling into our weekly radio show (WARL 1320 AM, Weds, 12-1p, EST) from Toronto.

Here's the first of our stories this week: 
Toronto's Sustainable Energy Plan*
*Playing your part in drafting Toronto's Energy Plan*

Toronto is facing a growing number of challenges caused by our increasing energy use. Some of these challenges are:
  • poor air quality and climate change caused by coal and fossil fuels
  • potential rotating power losses (brownouts or blackouts)
  • increasing energy costs, equalling almost $4.5 billion annually spent on energy purchases
We listened to Torontonians and created the Climate Change, Clean Air and Sustainable Energy Plan. The plan has been approved by the Parks & Environment Committee and Executive Committee. In July 2007, the plan was also approved by City Council.
