Editor’s Note: In addition to my site, the ECOreport, I am one of the bloggers for Clean Technica and we were asked to submit an entry to the Masdar Blogging Contest. The focus was to: “Describe your city in 2030: what will occur due to changes in energy, transportation and water technologies, and how will they transform how you live?” I decided to describe what I would like to see on Cortes Island.
Since then one of my neighbours, Nancy, has drawn up a petition “calling for Cortes Island to commit to become 100% clean (by 2050) because that’s what scientists tell us is necessary to safeguard our future.” She addressed it to our Regional Director, Noba Anderson. Access it here.)

There are presently fewer than a thousand residents on Cortes Island, which is presently a six-hour drive (and three ferry trips) north of Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada. There will be many renewable opportunities on Cortes Island by 2030.
