Intro. to "Green-InterFaith" Discussion Group

I just joined this group and wanted to introduce myself and query current memebers about their activities and ideologies.

I am an Ancient Green, having come of age during the early years of The Institute for Local Self-Reliance, Total Environmental Action, R.A.I.N, and the multitude of other green organizations that flourished in the 70's.

I have read Van Jones' book. I have tremendous respect for his call to inclusion for the envireonmental movement, but must point out that Van's understanding of "green technologies" is naive, as we were in the early days.

The real opportunity for a "green collar economy" is in a comprehensive demand side management plan coupled with a comprehensive supply side reallocation scheme in which we rebuild neighborhoods and reallocate goods and services to those neighborhoods in a "plan and implement" socialist paradigm.

I have given many years of study and thought to the situation and see no alternative other than to fundamentally change the ways in which resources are allocated to and within communities and within and among economic sectors.
