Optimism: 4 Categories: Economic/Financial, Renewable Energy Sources

Greenpeace supports investment in renewable energy sourcesA Zogby poll taken November 5-6 that found 78 percent of those polled believe investing in clean energy is important to revitalizing the nation's economy. Support for this investment was particularly strong among youth (87 percent for ages 18-24) and minorities (94 percent among African-Americans and 84 percent among Hispanics). A majority of both parties viewed clean energy as important, although the margin was much higher among Democrats (94 percent) than Republicans (58 percent).

In general, numbers among all categories were higher in 2008 than they were the last time the survey was conducted in 2006. "While the economy was the top issue in the 2008 election, clean energy clearly emerged as part of voter expectations for getting the economy back on track," said John Zogby, President and CEO of Zogby International.

The survey, commissioned by the National Wildlife Foundation, surveyed 3,357 American voters and had a margin of error of 1.7 percent.

Yes, I am trying to present some positive stories, but not the sugar-coated ones. As I say it to those who ask: I don't do stories on baking organic cookies (not that there is anything wrong with it, but that is not my goal). This survey result gives some hope that maybe, just maybe, there is the start of a foundation for a large shift in direction, with the right leadership.

It is good to see so many more people making the switch to organic and green lifestyles. Great trend!
