Re: E-M:/ Ann Arbor Energy Forum February 8th

Thank you for responding. It sounds like your group has taken on a lot of important issues. I commend you and your colleagues for that!
I'm sure the event will be lively and informative. I will do my best to attend.
The only point I was trying to make, and I am sorry if I was clumsy about it, is that there is alot of GREEN-sounding stuff coming out of Ann Arbor these days. But sometimes the reality (like the City Council and Mayor not including hybrids in their "GREEN" Fleet of City-owned cars) doesn't line up with their rhetoric.
Maybe you can ask the Mayor about that at your meeting.
Good luck. And thank you for your efforts!

I have forwarded your email to the executive committee members of our organization; as well as our environment committee members.  The environment committee was new this past December.
Our organization is interested in a large number of issues.  Everything from the war in Iraq, to election fraud in Ohio, to the plight of welfare mothers.  All our members do not agree, or are knowledgeable on all these issues.  Also, as I am sure you are aware, it is difficult to keep up with all environmental issues on every level of government, (local, state, federal and even internationally).
This forum was not meant to push anyone's particular agenda, but was meant to provide information and to encourage discussion.  I encourage you to attend and share your knowledge and perspective with us.  We would be happy to meet you!

I support renewable energy, and this looks like a good event from a good organization. I have experimented with solar panels and wind power, and I'm about to buy a Ford Escape Hybrid.
But I must say that the keynote speaker is an interesting choice, since Ann Arbor City Commission and the Mayor Hieftje just killed a proposal to include hybrids in the City's so-call GREEN vehicle fleet.
