This 2008 political year is unlike any other in the history of the planet. It is the first time ever where Green / Sustainable Energy / Eco-Issues have had a forefront position in candidate attention and public desire for change. Is this, in some ways, the Year of the Green Candidate? We shall see.
Among the greenest situations we could uncover were the efforts of The Creative Coalition and Bank of America’s 20 billion dollar ongoing ten year green initiative. We were at the DNC in Denver and fortunate to attend the award presentation to Bank of America by the Creative Coalition.
CTN Green chose this opportunity to discover what GREEN thinking was available at the DNC in Denver. Al Gore spoke eloquently, of course, but a welcomed presence was also The Creative Coalition, who used this timely opportunity to give Bank of America an award for it’s 20 billion dollar Green Initiative.
Neal Gray of CTN met and interviewed many great people involved in that green endeavor, about which we shall write in a separate article.
The DNC did not devote as much time to environmental emphasis at this event as we would have hoped apart from Al Gore delivering a great message on Thursday.
