From the Hands Across the Sand Web site:

It is time to say NO to filthy fuels and YES to clean energy. It is time to draw a line in the sand, on the land, around our capitols with the powerful image of people joining hands in solidarity to say NO more drilling off our shores!

What an incredible day to stand up again for clean energy. When the sun has a giant spill, we call it a nice day. And it's been going 4.5 billion years without an outage or a rate increase. Contact me if you'd like to use it more in your life. Chris Herman
