For Earth Day, I present the Detroit Free Press Green Leaders for 2011!

In an earlier post, I said that the solutions created here in Michigan and especially in metro Detroit for the problems of economic and societal collapse will be exported to the rest of the continent, including the bad ones. I actually said that to my environmental science class tonight as part of the conclusion to my last lecture of the semester. I then told the students that the lesson that they were to take away from the class was that it was their responsibility to encourage good solutions and squash the bad ones. They applauded.

I've already told you all about a bad solution to be squashed. Now it's time to point you all to some good solutions to be encouraged, courtesy of the Detroit Free Press.
