A Message from Steve Geil:
I wanted to take a minute to pass on a conversation I had with Carmine Iadarola, an EDC investor, who attended "United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 16)" in Cancun, Mexico two weeks ago.
Cop 16 was an international gathering of world leaders, both government and private, to discuss renewable energy and greenhouse gas emissions.
During one of the sessions, there was a panel of business leaders discussing issues facing the world. On the panel were Ted Turner, Jacque Cousteau Jr. Presidents of Coca Cola and Siemens and others. They were talking about the infrastructure investment all over the world to reduce greenhouse gasses and the issue of the high speed rail was raised. During the discussion, the subject of America and it lagging behind the rest of the world in both of these areas came up. The President of Siemens, said that California has taken the lead on these issues, and is attracting investment, and that Fresno, California is at the epicenter of this movement as a vocal proponent of clean energy and the high speed rail.
The good news of Fresno is getting out! Now, world leaders are spreading the word.
