Green Revolution

The Detroit area has been a driver of the fossil fuel based industry that was essential to the growth of this nation and the middle class in this country. Now as the risks to health and climate from fossil fuels are becoming increasingly clear, it is time to look forward and innovate like never before! There is no reason Warren can't be the driver of a new Green Revolution in technology. City ordinances should be welcoming to solar panels and other innovations for energy production, water conservation, zero-waste manufacturing, and retrofitting of buildings to reduce energy consumption. More often than not, regulations create jobs and removing regulations eliminates jobs.
