And now I’m gonna pass the mic to my friend David, a New Orleanian living up in the great white north, because he has a proposal worthy of your consideration:
I’ve proposed an idea on the American Express’ Members Project which could be a tremendous boon to low-income home owners in New Orleans. See it here. However, the project needs as many people as possible to vote for it (or “nominate it” in AmEx-ease).
The project is called “Geothermal Power for Low-Income Home Owners.” Geothermal is a proven, carbon-free means of cooling and heating homes and water heaters. The idea behind this project is that it would address several needs at once: global warming, financial insecurity during a period of record foreclosures and energy costs, and of course New Orleans’ recovery.
But as I said, the project needs a show of public support, and that’s where you come in. Anyone can vote for it. If you don’t have an AmEx card, simply use a Guest login. And if you like the project, please help spread the word about it.
If the proposal becomes a finalist, it stands to get between $100K and $1.5 million. I have nominated Global Green to be the managing organization. So, please, get to nominating.
Again, the link to David’s proposal is here.
Update: David switched the managing organization to The Green Project.
