Letter: More work needed on energy policiesPublished 10:27am Thursday, May 9, 2013
Letter to the Editor
Six years ago, the state came together in a bipartisan way to pass landmark policies to advance renewable energy and energy efficiency. But we still have work to do. These policies will take Minnesota further down the road to a clean energy future that provides good jobs and protects the environment for generations to come.
With other clergy, I have, from a moderate position, urged an ethical, civil response to public issues. As an example in life and action, embraced goals that I have believed would enhance the well-being of each of us as citizens. For some of us it is an expression of religious/moral commitment to work for clean energy, clean water, and clean hearts!
Taking the biblical story of the Garden of Eden of a cultural memory, may we not dream and work for a beautiful, nurturing and safe environment for our times?
