2008 Solar Today, March-April Cover Story

The March-April 2008 Solar Today issue is very special to me. It was my first cover story for this national magazine. The article, “Local Lessons for Global Policy” described the City of Fort Collins’ policy journey towards a more sustainable future. Most of the ideas that wind up changing the world start in communities, then move the state level, and final emerge at the national and global issue. It is never an overnight process – and almost never starts from the top down.

I short the cover photograph on a tour of our local, fairly-nearby, wind farm in Medicine Bow, WY. When I was laying on the dirt taking this, everyone assumed I must be crazy a real photographer.

Thanks to their amazingly create art director, Allison Gray, Solar Today won the 2008 APEX Awards for Publication Excellence for this cover.
