Coal Conversion to Solar Power

An optimistic review of transition & change.  In nearly every century, major shifts have *had* to take place.

Let's shift in ways that most advantage people - and all living things!

This article - linked below - includes these notes:
People were skeptical when the idea was first floated about a year ago, says Nick Getzen, spokesman for The Jobs Project, which is trying to create renewable energy job opportunities in West Virginia and Kentucky. In the southern coalfields, he says, people have only ever gotten electricity one way – from coal-fired power plants.

"This is the first sign for a lot of folks that this is real, and that it's real technology, and they can have it in their communities," Getzen says. "In no way are we against coal or trying to replace coal. There's still going to be coal mining here. This is just something else to help the economy."
