WMNF Drive-Time News Tuesday | Listen to this entire show:
Across the country today, the political activist group MoveOn held 150 rallies for clean energy. The planned rallies in the Tampa Bay area were cancelled because of Tropical Storm Fay, but WMNF spoke with Joe Illingworth, a Pinellas coordinator for MoveOn. Illingworth said the country wants clean energy rather than Sen. John McCainâ€™s energy policy of continued oil dependence.
â€œâ€¦We think the problem weâ€™re in now is because weâ€™ve been relying on fossil fuels and fossil thinking instead of becoming a world leader in the energy of the future.â€
