WCBS 880’s Catherine Cioffi: There Will Be A Three-Hour Brainstorming Session

Clearwater officials say their goal is to bring sustainable green energy to the Hudson Valley.

After a three-hour brainstorming session the outcome of the meeting will be announced.

Folk legend Pete Seeger launched the Clearwater in 1969 with the hope of cleaning up the Hudson River.

On its website, the Clearwater organization says it “is the 12 year old who starts a recycling program in their school, the leader of the DEC, the business owner incubating green jobs, the musician singing for a cleaner river or the parent who teaches their kids how to live in harmony with nature.”

    Nice blog about the Hudson River. Thomas Cole was born in England but moved to the United States as a youth. His talents for painting were soon discovered and his works focused on landscapes and the Hudson River. Please check out my blog and let me know what you think! What a neat way to do Thomas Cole art and fun with it! http://segmation.wordpress.com/2011/03/26/thomas-cole-founder-of-the-hudson-river-school-www-segmation-com/
