A Party for a Solar Powered New York

If you are anything like me, you can be supportive of a particular piece of legislation. But that support doesn't always turn into action. From clean energy legislation to local feed-in tariffs, there is plenty that law makers can do to help us move to a greener, saner, more efficient economy. But they need to know that the political will is there. Presumably that's why Solar One, the New York solar, arts and education center, has come up with a genius method of inspiring action. Get people drunk. OK, I simplify a bit. But Solar One is throwing a party for a solar powered New York. The event will be held on the 16th of the month and will feature a clean energy teach in, a letter writing bar (stamps, envelopes etc provided. No word on who pays for drinks.), and an interactive competition to build your own solar powered device with friends. All this will be accompanied by DJs and cocktails. Who knew advocacy could be so much fun?
