Have a look at this article on CNN: “Solar Power Makes Tiny Village Beam“. It’s a fantastic story featureing not only environmental progress, but human happiness and bottom of the pyramid economic progress. But if you spend any time reading TreeHugger, this blog, or many others, the story isn’t a whole lot unlike the dozens we dig up every day.
What makes this one significant is that all afternoon it’s been the featured story on the CNN front page. What’s going on? Either there haven’t been any terrible disasters lately, or some editor has finally taken a big leap and grabbed a typical 3P/TreeHugger piece and brought it to the next level of mainstream consciousness. This can only be good for all concerned. What’s next?
