 20:41:00  matt montagne ->  Hi Katydel!!!
 20:41:10  Drew Buddie ->  Question - Jason, what are your thoughts about the 'climate change naysayers' who say that climate change is a fabrication and not based in fact?
 20:41:16  matt montagne ->  @durff...I agree, but it is a great opportunity to start innovating
 20:41:17  PeggyG ->  so many of the solutions seem to cost money to save money (and the environment)
 20:41:45  mrsdurff ->  Q: Changes people think of often include things like cloth shopping bags, recycling, buying efficient light bulbs, turning off water while brushing teeth, etc. But are these things really going to make any significant impact?
 20:41:53  tippytay ->  maybe if Vermonters had a sunnier disposition, they would use less energy?
 20:42:00  PeggyG ->  I'd really like to hear Jason's response to Drew's question!!

 20:44:43  katydel ->  I can't get sound
 20:44:46  tippytay ->  do you feel that the Amtrak auto train is a good option?  If so, why do they limit its route to 2 stops?  It seems very environmentally friendly?
