READER’S EDITORIAL: TELLING IT LIKE IT IS—A SELF-SUSTAINING FUTURE FOR OUR REGION AND OUR WORLD

A Jim Bell & Common Sense Commentary
 
“My vision is to gracefully transform the San Diego/Tijuana Regional economy, now 98% dependent on imported energy and 90% dependent on imported water and food -- into an economy that is prosperous and completely renewable, energy, water and food self-sufficient. Accomplishing this is our best chance to leave our children and future generations a life-support sustaining future. Becoming renewable energy, water and food self-sufficient in our region will also serve as a model that can be emulated around the world.” –Jim Bell.
