Park Watch - All Politics is Personal

There are moments in history where the world can choose to go down different paths.

We can choose to go down the road towards green prosperity and a more sustainable future. Or we can choose a pathway to stalemate and do nothing about climate change leaving an enormous bill for our kids and grand-kids to pay.

Compare two blogs.

The Minneapolis Park Board is considering a project that would eliminate their carbon footprint, create much-needed construction jobs, and generate millions of dollars of revenues for the parks. Park Watch opposes it. Why? They don’t like the people involved.

Imagine for a moment, if you will, a Park Watch delegation to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. Have you got it pictured? Yep, we do too. And it’s not pretty.

  1. This park board are hypocrites talking in their campaigns about a green park system. This is a disgusting lack of leadership. They are cowards willing to sacrifice the park system just for their pathetic jobs as park commissioners. They should be ashamed.
