The Treehugger.com Best of Green 2012 Awards

I’m really honoured to be nominated in the TreeHugger.com ‘Best of Green Readers’ Choice Awards’.  However, I’m not going to be encouraging people to vote for me, rather to vote for Bill McKibben of 350.org, who I think deserves to win it far more than myself or David Korten.  What Bill has done with the Keystone pipeline campaign and so much more really deserves any awards going.  I voted for Bill, if you have a minute to do so, be great if you did the same.  You can vote here.  Thanks.

I appreciate your modesty Rob and I agree that Bill McK has done so very much this year. But I voted for you anyway because your contribution has been unique, innovative and full of heart and good humor. And because I think Transition with its local action for resilience has started to reach people in a way that traditional political activism alone has not.

Ha, I voted for Rob, and persuaded my wife to vote for David! So glad to see Transition work prospering everywhere I look.

Rob! Bill! Have you people not heard that self-interest ultimately and inevitably works to the benefit of all? Sheesh… ;)
