Blue collar jobs. Green economy.
Contact producer Lee McQueen to sponsor the Blue.Green.Fusion webcast.
For the Blue.Green.Fusion webcasts, Lee gathers research from a wide variety of sources including interviews, corporate literature, meetings, site visits, Internet searches, newspapers, newsletters, newspapers, and reports. She scripts and storyboards each episode. Then she shoots, edits, uploads to the Internet, summarizes, tags, and distributes the video via social media.
Lee provided more information about her background, then described the purpose and goals of Blue.Green.Fusion -- blue collar jobs for a green economy.
Topics focused on barriers to community-wide access to renewable energy resources, particularly wind since Iowa has a strong presence in the North American wind energy industry.
Lee provided a history of wind energy in the Middle East, Europe, then North America, quoting Buckminster Fuller when describing the rise and fall then rise again of interest in wind energy development.
