We have had interviews with representatives of the private, public and non-profit sectors, informing our listeners about the benefits of installing solar panels and every subject matter of economic interest surrounding the solar and renewal energy industry. We have discussed the important roles black Americans play every day in their jobs in the solar and renewable energy industry.

Guests have included Black American owners of solar companies such as  Gilbert Cambell,  Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Volt Energy, head of the Department of Energy and Environment for Washington DC director Tommy Wells, both federal, state, city, and local, federal, private sector and nonprofit policy makers.

We have  invited the President & Founder of The Green For All Team, Van Jones, who is a Black American Yale-educated attorney and CNN political commentator. He has authored two New York Times best selling books. The Green Economy (2008) and Rebuild the Dream (2012).

The second book chronicles his journey as an environmental and human rights activist to becoming a White House policy advisor. He was the main advocate for the Green Jobs Act signed into law by George W. Bush in 2007. The Green Jobs Act was the first piece of federal legislation to codify the term “green jobs.” During the Obama Administration, the legislation resulted in $500 million in national funding for green jobs training.

This show has served to support local, national and international discussions about environmental education and renewable energy projects and initivatives. To educate the black community and  communities of color nationwide that are, and have historically been, beset by human and civil rights violations, including disproportionate exposure to pollution, crime, substandard living conditions and more.

The NAACP Environmental Justice Legal Defense Fund published a report stating. African Americans who reside near energy production facilities, including coal fired power plants, nuclear power plants, or biomass power plants, are more likely to suffer the negative health impacts of prolonged exposure to smog, lead, asbestos, mercury, arsenic, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and other toxins, than any other group of Americans.  

Prolonged exposure to toxins from these energy production facilities, is tied to birth defects, heart disease, asthma attacks, lung disease, learning difficulties, and even lower property values.
Approximately 68% of African Americans live within 30 miles of a coal-fired power plant, which produces the largest proportion of energy compared to any other energy production type.

Our goal is to  make the economic impacts of climate change  and  solar energy, and other  forms of renewable energy  a major conversation in the black community to increase environmental public awareness. An knowledge about the environment and initiatives such as Washington DC new Solar for All Energy  Initiative, which will increase conversations on issues, the need for environmental  and renewable energy education in the black community.

 Your sponsorship of the "Solar Now and the Future With its Economic Impact on Black America"  will enable the podcast to expand as a national talk radio program .On climate change  and  energy issues that affect the black community, which the program has provided on a weekly basis. The black community will be better able to make informed decisions and take responsible actions relative to the environment and renewable energy. 

I have  met with Morgan State University Director of Corporate Underwriting for WEAA.org 88.9 FM Ms. Michelle Petties in Baltimore, Maryland; and Mr. Jerry Paris, General Manager for WPFW 89.3 FM Radio in Washington, DC. Both stations have expressed a strong interest in picking up the show, but I must raise the sponsorship dollars to underwrite the show because both stations are public service radio stations and both are non-commercial stations.
