Interesting facts: The United States has never elected a president with no elective, appointive or military public experience. Hillary Clinton would be the most qualified president in American history while Donald Trump would be the least qualified having never been elected to public office, never been appointed to a political office, and having no military experience. Hillary Clinton's experience in public service includes eight years working in the White House as first lady, eight years as U.S. senator from New York and most recently a four-year term as the 67th U.S. secretary of state. #HillaryClinton #DonaldTrump

The Obama Administration wants to make solar energy available to every American regardless of income. In that spirit, the White House just announced a partnership with six federal agencies – the Clean Energy Savings For All Initiative – to bring 1 gigawatt (GW) of solar to low- and moderate- income families by 2020.

The proposal calls for 1,025 new subway cars, including 750 open-end cars, and major upgrades to 31 stations across the five boroughs. Read my Inhabitat NYC story for more. #NYCSubway

Andrew Martin left the fast-paced business world in order to live a more simple and sustainable life in balance with nature. He and his wife Beth began growing a permaculture farm in New Zealand. In just three years it has turned into a lush oasis featuring a vegetable garden, fruit trees, a pond and wildlife habitats. Read my Inhabitat story for more. #Permaculture
