Oregon: 100% renewable by 2010?
Alex Steffen, 19 Mar 06

Oregon Governor Ted Kulongoski has declared that all state agencies will be powered entirely by renewable energy by 2010:

"Kulongoski had previously set the mark at 100 percent by 2025, before deciding to ramp up the schedule as a way to create jobs and set an example in responsible energy consumption.

"'I want to shorten our timetable by 15 years. I want to do it by 2010, and I think we can do this if we set the bar and say we are going to move toward this target,' he said in prepared remarks to the Oregon Sustainability Board on Friday."

(good grab, Dave!)

Nice change. Though cutting off 15 years is a big gap, it simply shortens our procrastination time. My intial reaction was "that's a nice thought but it's not going to happen." THEN I realized, of course it can. By shortening our time, we are motivated to take more action.
I know this concept works because I do that with my school work and projects.
Brilliant!!
