I've seen the future -- and it's still Green

MUCH has been made of the fact that many voters feel despair over the perceived lack of leadership and vision for the future of this nation from all our political parties.
Stranded in my home by the severe weather over the past number of weeks, it became clear to me that one party has a clear vision based on sustainable economic growth, civic responsibility and the protection of our environment.
As a result of Green Party policy, I was able to install a wood pellet burner with grant aid. This served me well over the shocking weather and will continue to serve me well when oil supplies dwindle in the near future. My mother, also with grant aid, insulated her home and has significantly reduced her heating bills this winter.
