Rather than hand it off or terminate it, I decided I'm going to continue blogging about Southern California's new green economy from the vantage point of living in our Nation's Capital.
So Green SoCal won't be going anywhere, but it will look a bit different.
California is at the forefront of the clean energy revolution and therefore has a special relationship with Washington as the Obama Administration, Congress and the Federal Government place the climate crisis and clean energy at the center of debate and policy.
From L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's frequent cross-country visits to lobby on behalf of federal funding for the 30/10 Initiative, to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (and whoever takes his office in November) visiting Washington often to meet with high-ranking officials and politicos about California's cutting edge clean-tech sector -- there is a mutually beneficial relationship between D.C. and California when it comes to the new green economy.
I hope to provide Southern Californians with the highest quality news and analysis with a first look at the issues coming out of Washington that no other SoCal-based blog is able to provide.
I look forward to continue growing Green SoCal from Washington, D.C. as the "next industrial revolution" ramps up like we've never seen before. If you have any questions or comments please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm always looking for new ideas on how to improve Green SoCal.
