One impulse from a vernal wood may teach you more of man, Of moral evil and of good, Than all the sages can.

The Sierra Club has made an endorsement in the 2008 Presidential race. Our Central Florida Group's hard-working Elections Committee has also made endorsements in several Central Florida national and state congressional races, as well as a few Soil and Water Board contests. However, federal election laws forbid us from listing our endorsements on our Central Florida Group website. For a list of candidates that have been endorsed in national contests, including the presidential race, go to http://www.sierraclub.org/politics/endorsements/index.asp


If you are a local Sierra Club member, you will receive the November/December issue of our newsletter in a few weeks with endorsement information, including some state and local races that aren't listed on the national website. We realize that many of our members plan to vote early, so if you have questions about a specific race before you vote, please contact Cecilia Height at 407-657-9582 or This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it for information.

 
Florida #2 in Solar Energy?

Florida Power and LightFlorida Power & Light Company just announced new solar energy projects that include the world’s largest photovoltaic solar plant and first “hybrid” energy center, coupling solar thermal technology with an existing combined-cycle generation unit.

“Pending regulatory approval, FPL will build 110 megawatts of solar power right here in the Sunshine State, making Florida No. 2 in the nation for solar energy,” FPL Group Chairman and CEO Lewis Hay, III announced today at the 2008 Florida Summit on Global Climate Change in Miami. “This is made possible in part by the strong support and determined leadership of Governor Crist and the Florida legislature, who crafted a progressive energy bill that put a supportive policy framework in place for solar power.”
