Years ago the United States had a President’s Council for Sustainable Development. It met for six years during the 1990s, welcomed the participation of the American people, and came up with a series of reports and recommendations for how we could create a more sustainable America.
But that was years ago; and most of the recommendations have still not been implemented. See: http://clinton5.nara.gov/PCSD
Many families, businesses, cities, schools, churches, and even a few states are taking action now to adopt sustainable practices; but this was hardly discussed during the recent election campaign. Now it is time for our Federal Government to lead the way once again. Please help us urge both the Obama Administration and Congress to lead the American people in developing and implementing a National Strategy for Sustainability.
