Eco Live 2007

Spent most of the day at Eco Live 2007. Got to spend a couple of hours with RFK Jr. this morning, then did a short speech and introduced him as the main speaker. An honor to meet him, and personally exciting to spend some time together. We had a little less than 1000 in the audience, but it was a great and very interactive crowd. Mr. Kennedy talked a lot from his latest book, but added on some great comments about the role of the wilderness in religion and the role of the environment in American history. I think both of our talks got taped somewhere, and if I find them I'll link to them here. We talked about how to use sensors and real-time websites to start to raise awareness about the changes that are happening in the environment. We both thought this might be a good fit for his work with our nation's water resources. We also got a Flex Your Power award today, which was awesome! Now at the airport for the redeye trip home - looking forward to getting there in the morning.

RFK Jr. is a radical leftist, not an environmentalist.

RFK Jr. led the legal fight to stop the first ever U.S. offshore wind farm. Some environmentalist!

RFK Jr. preaches radical leftist conspiracy theories in both published articles and on his radio show on the radical leftist Air America. He promotes a caustic, hateful political dialog and promotes division wherever he can. He seeks to poison and pollute the political dialog to promote his own agenda and increase his political strength.

RFK Jr. is an opportunist and a fraud. As a stockholder, I believe there are far better choices Sun could make to promote their message of green IT.

As we move from period where the goal is to get people to think about the environment to a period of actually doing something about it, RFK Jr. is noteworthy for what he has already done. Personally, I'm not strongly aligned with his politics, and think that the Kennedy family position on the Cape Wind project is NAMBY-esque. That said, I have a lot of respect for what he's done with the Waterkeeper Alliance and the work he's done for the Hudson River.
