And I'd love it if PG&E were on this list, to weigh these companies fairly, and if Bohemian asked Sonoma Clean Power to talk about what it's like to try to buy cleaner power with a cheaper price in a market known for being dirty in general -- we as citizens just didn't push hard enough to demand a nation-wide clean energy supply, so now we're stuck with playing in the dirty muck of the energy market as it is.
I'm down in Long Beach and I'm starting to spread the word down here.
I like this article and I love the fact that the Bohemian is investigating something so important to all of us, but I'd love it EVEN MORE if your reporter looked into the labor practices of each company. You can't be a GREEN ENERGY provider if you don't pay workers decent wages and benefits and give them a voice at work (especially in jobs like this where public safety is at risk- do you want a worker to have to choose between speaking up about shoddy safety standards or losing his or her job?) Workers rights standards should be a part of any criteria in picking a "Green Energy Partner"
Why is it that nowhere in this story is AMGEN (the tour sponsor) mentioned as the manufacturer and clandestine provider of the primary drug in the scandal? Why do the riders get slammed over and over while the creator and pusher of EPO gets the publicity, and praise, for TOC despite being deeply and darkly implicated in some seriously ugly drug controversy? http://www.cyclingnews.com/features/armstr…
