If the supposedly greenest state in the country, #Vermont, can’t figure out ways of solving these problems, how can we expect responsible choices from anyone else in the country? 

Read +Dan Jones piece at +Bob the Green Guy 
This commentary is by Dan Jones. Dan is an energy activist in Montpelier, and former chair of the Montpelier Energy Advisory Committee. We know global warming is happening and something needs to be done quickly to contain the damage. We know that our automobile based economy is probably not sustainable. At some level we even know …

Cold climate heat pumps have rapidly emerged as a promising technology for Vermont.  Come to a workshop to learn about heat pump options for both hot water and space heating and find out if they make sense for your home.

This workshop will cover:
- the latest in heat pump technologies,
- the relative economics of using heat pumps versus other fuel sources,
successful case studies,
- and resources to help you. 

The workshop will be led by Jake Marin, HVAC Program Manager with Efficiency Vermont.  Heat pump manufacturer reps and/or installers will be on-site to share information.  The workshop will be held on Wednesday, May 6th from 6:30-8:00 pm in the Porter Community Room of the Montshire Museum in Norwich, Vermont. Doors will open at 6:00 pm.  Food and drinks will be provided.  The workshop is being organized, in partnership with Efficiency Vermont, by Sustainable Energy Resource Group and is cosponsored by the Donnella Meadows Institute, Sierra Club of the Upper Valley, Two-Rivers Ottauquechee Regional Commission and Vital Communities. For more information, contact SERG at 802-785-4126 or bwalker@SERG-info.org.

Mary Albert, Executive Director, the U.S. Ice Drilling program, will speak about her research on ice cores from the Greenland and Antarctic Ice Sheets and temperate glaciers. These ice cores provide evidence of past climate that allow us to view the present in the context of times before human influence on the planet. 

Ice cores also provide evidence of the impact of economics and policy on the environment since the start of industrialization.  Human influence on the climate system now is clear, and is extremely likely the dominant cause of warming since the mid-20th century. A look around reveals that hope for mitigation may arise from economics, in this time of opportunity!

Thank you to everyone who has preordered my new album. I always dread the process of "crowd-funding" but there ain't nothing painful about it this time around. It's way more scary to sit in front of two Neumann microphones & wonder if you could possibly rise to the level of the technology staring you down … I've learned to just fall into it putting expectations aside .. it's all an experiment anyway. Why not venture who you are in any given moment in the face of naysayers & those who don't get you at all? What do you really have to lose? I guarantee, you'll make a few friends, and make at least one person feel less alone. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1215143917/horse-thief-a-new-album-from-kristina-stykos

Story
Introduction
Learn to live sustainably with Bob the Green Guy, “Head Aggregator” at www.bobthegreenguy.com, a developing website with news, books, products and insight on ways to live sustainably. His interest in energy-efficiency and sustainability started as Town Energy Coordinator in Chelsea Vt in 1976. Recognizing the need to be frugal in his new businesses marketing efforts, Bob read dozens of books like “Inbound Marketing” by Dharmesh Shah and Brian Halligan, “Content Rules” by C.C. Chapman and Ann Handley, and “Crush It” by Gary Vaynerchuk. He listened to hundreds of hours of podcast interviews on digital marketing like “The Twist Image Podcast” with Mitch Joel, and “Marketing Over Coffee” with Christopher S. Penn and John Wall. Getting advice from these digital-marketing industry leaders, he’s continuing to learn and applying all he can to marketing on the web. Social media marketing and reputation management are rapidly changing and constantly evolving fields, but Bob can offer current insights for individuals and businesses who are new, or relatively new, to social media marketing.
