Strip should take lead on green power

Let’s get rid of all the fossil fuel, go solar and use wind power.

Our state has sunshine, wind and a supply for geothermal energy. We just need the infrastructure to carry the thermal energy from the northern part of the state to the southern part. What’s the problem, people?

Want jobs and a renewable source of energy at the same time? This is not your grandfather’s planet anymore; we’ve changed.

The hotels and casinos of Las Vegas could be leaders in the world of solar energy. Where on earth are there so many huge resorts on one street, in the middle of a sunny desert that would make a prime opportunity for green energy?

All the CEOs out there, follow the lead of Jim Murren, chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International, and become trailblazers into a new frontier.

We here in Las Vegas could be the leaders of the world when it comes to modernizing our future and going green.

The world is not flat, Darwin was a genius and we’re just being stupid.
