Gov. Jennifer Granholm: Michigan Will Lead the Green Industrial Revolution
from HuffPost:



Jennifer M. Granholm
Governor of Michigan

Michigan Will Lead the Green Industrial Revolution



The battle against global climate change was kicked into a new gear this month, and Michigan is leading the charge.

That's right: Michigan.

The so-called "rust belt" state that has been putting cars, trucks, and SUV's on the road for over 100 years is putting the pedal to the metal on making the U.S. less reliant on fossil fuels.

Out with the old gas guzzlers of the past. Out with the old thinking of the past. Out with the old politics of the past. Out with the old rust belt.

May was the first month of the New: new technology, new ideas, and a new era of cooperation that will purposefully drive Michigan and America into the new clean-energy future. ........(more)

You will be completely "blown away" at how green Michigan will become. The sites of the former automobile plants are already becoming lushly green with overgrown vegetation.
