Greenpeace Rallies for Solar Energy

Mirror, mirror, on the Hall… San Francisco’s City Hall that is. More than 300 activists joined me for a rally in front of City Hall yesterday, lighting it up with small mirrors to show our support for solar energy.

That’s because San Francisco is on the verge of building the largest municipal clean energy network in the world, and the city’s mayor can make it happen.

I don’t have to tell you about skyrocketing energy prices or Bush’s failure to address global warming. I’m here to tell you that we don’t need President Bush anymore – not with local leaders like Mayor Newsom stepping up to the challenge.

And why should you care about what happens in San Francisco? Because this project won’t just be the largest renewable energy system in the country – it will be the largest in the WORLD, setting a precedent that every city, large or small, can follow.

TAKE ACTION Thank Mayor Newsom for his courage and leadership in making San Francisco the world leader in renewable energy.

No matter where you live, what happens now in San Francisco could change the future of renewable energy everywhere. That means less pollution, a step towards solving global warming, and lower energy costs.

You don’t have to shine your mirror on City Hall to express your support for renewable energy – just send a note to Mayor Newsom now.

Just a minute of your time could literally change the world.

For a clean energy future,


Samantha Rodgers
Energy Campaigner
