America’s Clean Energy Momentum: How’s your state doing? – By Rosaliene Bacchus

Three Worlds One Vision

UCS - Clean Energy is Sweeping the Nation

The news is good. Despite our pro-fossil-fuel administration of climate change deniers, the use of renewal energy is growing across the United States. So says the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) in their report Clean Energy Momentum: Ranking State Progressreleased in April 2017.

Across America, the growth of wind and solar power generation is impressive. Over the past decade, wind power expanded more than tenfold, supplying energy to more than 20 million households in 41 states. Since 2011, solar power has sprinted ahead with more than 900 percent in growth. In 2016, two million more households now use solar-powered electricity.

That’s not all. Investments in energy efficiency, over the last 25 years, have reduced our need for constructing more than 300 large carbon-emitting power plants. Last year alone, we saved a year’s worth of electricity usage of 20 million households.

    WE STILL HAVE A CHANCE

    Lets get to the very real story
    And review our sorry history
    Firstly our leaders vied for Independence
    Its our right its to get rid of our hindrance
    Promising progress with very lofty idealism
    Then the Big Two accused us of Communism
    But got instead a lukewarm brand of Socialism
    For those were the hot days of Cold Wars’ ism
    We ended up with a big dose of corruption
    Racialism, bloodshed and sheer destruction
    The people run away from their beloved Guyana
    To England and the cold harsh North America
    Causing a huge brain drain leaving Guyana rudderless
    Various parties struggling but they too come up clueless
    The good ol’ days when rigged ballots rained
    And at the same time coffers were drained
    And as the other party jump and take over
    So did the people as some run for cover
    But a simple Guyanese people we are
    We don’t want to relive another Wismar
    But after 51 years we still have a chance
    But we’ve to stop this bias racial dance
    Sadly politicians would never change
    Its like telling a dog it has bad mange
    The two races have to come together
    Live again like sister and like brother
    We have to be Guyanese again not a black man
    Think like a Guyanese and not like a coolie man
    Be accepted as real down earth Guyanese
    You be Chinese, Amer-Indian or Portuguese
    Maybe our last chance to make it
    If hate don’t drive us out of our wit
    There are some things we have to eradicate
    Stop fighting one another and stop the hate
    Talk to one another stop deny we’re steeped in racialism
    Stop lying, face the facts we have far too much nepotism
    Govern for everyone bring back equality
    Drop the darn ‘e’ and focus on quality
    Let’s pray to the one Above
    For all we need is Love
    Listen people take heed
    For Love is all you need.
