20:40:41 matt montagne -> Recession as Opportunity...I love that!!!!
20:40:44 katydel -> how is everything going?
20:40:55 mrsdurff -> recession is only going to gey worse
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!!
20:42:02 Drew Buddie -> <CLAPS> - Jason that was fantastic - very thought-provoking presentation
20:42:09 cherylo -> great presentation!
20:42:13 Drew Buddie -> I am in the UK and that was fantastic
20:42:26 Joe -> Great job, Jason!
20:42:27 Gutemberg Fox -> Awesome!
20:42:30 Doug -> well done
20:42:37 derrallg -> great presentation
20:42:40 mrsdurff -> hi jeff
20:42:59 Drew Buddie -> hey Derrall, hey Jeff
20:43:03 cherylo -> What a great keynote and way to kick off this important celebration
20:43:10 derrallg -> hey Drew
20:43:15 jeffmason -> hello to all been listening while doing dishes
20:43:23 Doug -> Q: what are the implications with diversion of crop to bio-fuels and away from food production?
20:43:26 Gutemberg Fox -> lol
20:44:17 mrsdurff -> wbkaty
20:44:24 derrallg -> hopefully they'll continue to move forward on the high speed rail between Bay Area and LA
20:44:31 jeffmason -> @Doug a few reports say negligible but I have one class looking at the data
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?
20:44:57 PeggyG -> didn't know that story about Biden--excellent to hear
20:45:13 Drew Buddie -> Jason is giving us some very interesting facts that are relevant even outside the USA
20:45:34 joser -> -Puentes al Mundo: Hola alejandra.. sigues aqui..
20:45:38 ray e -> I vote for high spped rail too
20:45:59 katydel -> I have sound now
20:46:15 Doug -> excellent @katy
20:46:42 Drew Buddie -> I agree Jason the rest of the world maybe thinks if USA does little what's the point i us doing anything?
20:46:44 matt montagne -> @derralG...I've noticed that there is alot of NIMBYism with high spped rail...
20:47:20 derrallg -> @matt yep that's been part of the problem, was the same with BART when they tried to circle the bay
20:47:21 Drew Buddie -> The new 'cheapest car in the world' in Asia will surely be a bad thing and drive up oil consumption
20:47:53 derrallg -> Would a first start be to follow the Kyoto accord
20:47:57 PeggyG -> I think everyone should join CarbonRally, get informed and accept the challenges there. http://www.carbonrally.com/
20:48:14 matt montagne -> agreed...even retroactively and as a gesture
20:48:33 Drew Buddie -> Jason talks so much sense - hopefully someone will invite him to come to the UK to talk to policy makers here
20:49:02 Drew Buddie -> Indeed lol
20:49:15 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?
20:49:38 Drew Buddie -> It's been a perfect start Matt - Jason has been excellent
20:50:17 jhsfbgjsdfgdjfg -> hi everybody
20:51:08 PeggyG -> @mrsdurff--they may be small but collectively they can make a big difference don't you think?
20:51:12 katydel -> It is great start congratulation Matt
20:51:13 joser -> -Puentes al Mundo: hola iniciamos un poco temprano la hora 2..
20:51:33 joser -> -Puentes al Mundo: hora local los angeles.. 5:49pm el 21 de Abril..
20:51:39 PeggyG -> awesome kickoff to the webcastathon!! Thanks Jason and all!
20:51:47 matt montagne -> thank you Katy
20:51:50 mrsdurff -> @Peggy I was hoping the keynote would address that
20:51:54 joser -> -Puentes al Mundo: hora global: 0:51.. hora global.
20:52:40 jeffmason -> @mrsdurff it begins and ends with the individual
20:53:03 PeggyG -> light rail is fantastic but definitely had it's naysayers and inconveniences in the beginning--now the're seeing the value
