It’s Christmas Eve. You may be flu-ridden, frantic, broke–but you deserve to have your spirits lifted nonetheless. Don’t miss Oliver Morton’s incredibly beautiful oped in today’s New York Times, "Not-So-Lonely Planet."
It’s amazing as a piece of persuasive writing, in that Morton uses unusual tools–hope, poetry, the ultimate bird’s-eye view–to argue for solar power. How could anyone resist Morton’s vision? I hope another amazing writer caught it with his morning coffee, too–Barack Obama.
