What if there were two light switches on your wall. One switch to get power from a corporate monopoly, the other from a community-owned, public energy company (CCA). What if that other switch moved rapidly to renewable energy, created real competition, added real, quality jobs, and boosted the local economy. What if that other switch created a greener energy grid, reduced our carbon footprint and helped lessen the effects of global warming. That other switch is the San Diego Energy District, the real alternative to business as usual. It’s time to make the switch to a brighter tomorrow. Find out how.

The world can be compared to a vehicle with free-castor wheels which is rolling down a hill with increasing gradient. A few passengers are warning that there may be a cliff edge somewhere ahead. Some are suggesting that there might just be time to design and fit brakes, steering and even a reverse gear. Others advise that the slope ahead might level off and so brakes and steering would be a waste of money. Some objectors complain that the passengers could never agree on the best direction to steer. Some are close to claiming that God wants humanity to drive over the cliff edge and that it is wrong to interfere with divine intentions.
We could also consider the climate system as a piano in which the spray regions are the keys, some black some white, on which a wide number of pleasant (or less unpleasant) tunes could be played if a pianist knew when and how hard to strike each key.
