Time and time again, important renewable energy projects fail because of a small but well-organized opposition
Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 28, 2009
Build baby build announces the launch of its new blog. The blog is dedicated to promoting the development of a distributed network of community-scale renewable energy facilities nation-wide. Led by experienced bloggers Jeffrey Rosenberg and Stephanie Hicks, the site delivers content, information, and opinions for community leaders and supporters of renewable energy.
"Time and time again, important renewable energy projects fail because of a small but well-organized opposition," says Jeff Rosenberg, co-editor of the new blog. "It's a lot harder to organize in support of something than it is to organize against it, but that's just what we need to do. Without an organized base of support, community-based renewable energy projects will never get off the ground."
"For renewable energy projects, both proposed and still on the drawing board, its time to take a page from Barack Obama's playbook," says Stephanie Hicks, co-editor of the blog. "Grassroot efforts, reaching out to individuals that will spread the word and excitement about wind and solar, are critical to the success of the green movement. If a large enough army is amassed nationwide, then individual battalions to support local projects can be commissioned in an organized fashion."
The company conducted a national search for blog editors that received over 250 responses. "I am already very pleased with both the content and Stephanie and Jeff's dedication to the subject and making this blog successful," says Ken Smith, the blog's sponsor. Though only two weeks old the blog already comes up #1 on a Google keyword search (for term: 'build baby build'), is being picked up by other significant blogs, and has picked up traffic on Digg, Twitter, Mixx, the PickensPlan, and other social media platforms.
