Mayor Dyer Presents Opportunities For Floridians
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links and note magenta)
Time to Catch up…some of you have been requesting to view the video recording from Mayor Buddy Dyer (of Orlando)’s Climate & Energy Summit separately, rather than continuously. So, I’ve separated them (with one video per post) for your perusal, below:
First we start off with Mayor Buddy Dyer’s presentation, inviting residents of Florida to look upon the climate change challenges (warming temperature and more extreme weather) as opportunities and the fact that there is much all city governments may accomplish. For example, moving toward more energy efficient buildings (LEED certified), reduction of fuel cost by conversion of Lynx buses to hybrids and CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) within five year period, beginning operation of SunRail on May 1, 2014, solar array installation on the roof of Valencia College, Ikea, Disney converting food wastes into electricity, etc. More than 200 community, business, nonprofit and public sector leaders also learn first hand how to join with businesses and governments across the U.S. in how to achieve positive results from employing the latest innovative technologies and strategies in climate action and sustainable energy. There will be much to develop in solar energy in the future. The event is part of the Community Initiative, Green Works Orlando Initiative. This is Orlando or Central Florida’s comprehensive vision to insure our community to become one of the most environmentally friendly, economically and socially vibrant communities in the nation.
More will be coming in the following posts.
