To begin with, I’d like to attribute my success in the 2008 election predictions to FiveThirtyEight, a terrific political analysis website to which I was addicted throughout the campaign. The website’s excellent poll analysis was the basis of my own projections. And of course the overall intelligence of the American people to finally elect an intelligent leader with an understanding of the importance of environmental issues ultimately allowed my realistic/optimistic predictions to come to fruition. Like most Climate Progress readers, I’m very excited about the prospects of the Obama presidency, and in fact I’m writing this post on the eve of his inauguration.
Shifting subjects a bit, another of my favorite websites (along with Climate Progress, of course) is the Green Home Huddle.
It is a green products website with a number of very useful features, from user reviews of green products to wiki articles on a variety of environmental subjects to a green discussion board (including a climate change section). I consider the Green Home Huddle to be a big database where environmentally-conscious people can learn and share our own knowledge and experience about everything from electric cars to climate change to environmentally friendly food and cleaning products.
The Green Home Huddle also has an Ask an Industry Leader segment in which someone with expertise in an environmental industry (such as ZAP co-founder Gary Starr) agrees to an interview, and Huddler users supply the questions. Joe has generously agreed to be the site’s next expert, and questions are now being accepted from Huddler users.
So for all you Climate Progress readers who have been dying for Joe to answer your questions, this is your chance. You can ask Joe about any subject within his expertise (for example, energy efficiency, alternative energy, climate change, etc.). Huddler users will also vote on the questions (each post has the option to “Rate Post” with a thumbs-up), and the best questions will be submitted to Joe. You do have to register with Huddler first, but that’s free of course. And while you’re there, I recommend checking out the rest of the site, and maybe hopping over to participate in some of the climate change discussions. The more the merrier.
