Over on Kos, I just saw the greatest example of grassroots political activism I've ever seen, and I wanted to share it with folks on this site. A group of Kos readers have gotten together and (with input from thousands of comments), written Energize America, a 20-point plan for making America energy-independent and reduce greenhouse gases in the process. It's detailed and well-researched enough that you could easily write bona fide legislation based on it. And yet you can sum up each of the 20 points in a few words, and the whole concept in a few sentences. Put this on Howard Dean's desk, or Al Gore's or whoever our next presidential candidate is, and you've got a succinct energy policy that will revolutionize our economy, cut our dependence on Saudi Arabia and Iran, and quite possibly save humanity from extinction. Check it out.
