We're introducing a new page at The Energy Collective today and we'd like to invite all of you all to be part of it.  It's called The Hippodrome and it's a place for public discussion of issues that have an impact on climate change and environmental issues. This will remain a private back channel but there are some many great discussions here that we want to encourage  those of you who want to get your ideas heard by a wider audience to share them at The Hippodrome also.

You can join the conversation in two ways: comment directly beneath individual posts or click on Leave a Comment (first link in the main navigation bar) and write your own entry of whatever length you want.  If you aren't already a member of The Energy Collective, you'll need to register the first time you visit and log in on subsequent visits.  You can also upload a headshot to the My Profile link and your picture will accompany your comments--just like the handsome Mr. Sklar, who has kindly volunteered to be our featured referee of the month.  The page is here:

If you don't see your comment right away, it just means that our editor hasn't approved it yet.  Check back a little later.  If you have any questions about how to register or use the site or upload your picture, send a note to my partner jerry@socialmediatoday.com.
