congresswoman giffords shot in Arizona Arizona gets a frequent mention on the pages of CleanTechnica as it embraces a clean energy future with solar power and other forms of alternative energy, and Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has been front and center in pushing this movement forward on a national level with her support for federal greenhouse gas legislation, so please bear with this brief pause to reflect on the devastating wound that this dynamic leader suffered in yesterday’s shooting, on the injuries inflicted upon those around her, and on the deaths of six innocent people. Your thoughts and comments are welcome in the thread below.

In a press conference after the shooting, Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik deplored the “anger, the hatred, the bigotry” and the violent anti-government rhetoric that has colored the public discourse with increasing intensity, and called upon the country to do some “soul searching.” If his words are not just to be spoken into the wind,  it will be because all of us, in every state in this great nation, continue to press forward.
