How to Save Motor City

Letting Detroit fail: catastrophic. Transforming it into a lean green machine-maker: visionary. Read more »

 

We've got a ton of great content this week. My favorite piece is a realistic look at what it will take to save Detroit, how we can make a bailout equitable and fair for everyone, and the environment.

We've also got new pieces from energy icons like Michael T. Klare and Howard Kunstler, a look at a super energy plan from a Spanish billionaire, and Rikki Ott takes Sarah Palin to task for her "drill" mantra.

And, in addition to all this great stuff, we've got a special holiday deal for AlterNet readers. You can now get a copy of our beautiful full color book, Water Consciousness about solutions to the global water crisis for $14.95. It makes an amazing gift for enviro lovers or those just waking up to our water problems. With essays from leading environmentalists and over 50 stunning photographs, it's a steal. Click here and find out.

Thanks for reading,

Tara Lohan, Senior Editor
