EcoWaste Coalition Welcomes Change in America!

"We join the American people in welcoming the dawn of a new era under President-elect Barack Obama. Like the rest of the world, we expect his administration to initiate bold steps to prevent the global climate crisis from getting worse. On top of our wish list are two commonsensical things that his presidency can easily do: 1) make "Zero Waste for Zero Warming" a keystone in his declared intent to cut greenhouse emissions and create green jobs, and 2) attend the climate talks in Poznan, Poland to demonstrate US commitment to work in solidarity with all nations in putting a lid on all emission sources and in crafting a holistic and funded strategy to combat global warming. The financial crunch should in no way slash the required resources to beat climate change. In fact, what we need now to improve the US as well as the global economy are major investments in green, climate-friendly solutions such as Zero Waste and clean and renewable energy," said Manny Calonzo of the EcoWaste Coalition and the Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives.
