Lobby GE For Wind Powered Liberty

A few weeks ago I proposed an idea to give green power an image boost - making the Statue of Liberty's lights run on clean wind and solar power.

I think I have found the perfect partner for this endeavor, that is if they really want to make green power a reality. You may have heard of their ecomagination campaign. General Electric is trying to put an green shine on their corporate image emphasizing its newer cleaner technologies including more efficient machines and even windmills. GE was also involved in making security tighter at the Statue of Liberty, donating their bomb detecting equipment, so I figure they must already have some of the relationships in place.

Last night I sent a short letter to GE informing them of my proposal. I have not heard back yet, but I have seen some traffic to the website from some of their locations, so perhaps now is the point where a little extra push from the public would help nudge them in the right direction.

Send your note of support for this project at this site and link them back to the original post on the blog: http://peakoilnyc.blogspot.com/2005/08/wind-powered-liberty.html.

It's time to declare Lady Liberty Free of Fossil Fuels.

Re: GE idea, we should try whatever can work to help save and conserve energy.

I sent a short letter to GE. Hope they'll figure that it would be great PR for them and do it.
