Solutionary Rail Author Reading at Village Books, Bellingham

On Wednesday, Feb 8th at Village Books in Fairhaven, Bellingham, co-author Bill Moyer will present the Solutionary Rail proposal, answer questions on how we can electrify our nation's railways, and help plug people into this visionary yet do-able project that helps us stand up for our bioregion and gives a positive alternative to the Pacific Northwest becoming a fossil fuel transportation corridor. 

Solutionary Rail describes a people-powered campaign to electrify America’s railroads and open corridors to a clean energy future. Rail, unique among forms of mass transportation, can easily be electrified. Because electricity is increasingly coming from clean sources such as sun and wind, rail has the potential to serve as a clean and reliable form of transportation while invigorating communities along the way. The Solutionary Rail book proposes overhead rail electrification, powered by renewable energy accomplished in conjunction with track modernization. This infrastructural investment will bring to the United States the reliable, electrified, higher-speed service now common on public railroads in Europe, Asia and elsewhere.

Bill Moyer of Vashon Island WA, co-founded the Backbone Campaign in 2003 with friends from an artist affinity group. He has dual and intersecting paths as both an activist and artist. Backbone Campaign has been a vehicle for much growth and Bill has emerged as a leader in the theory and practice of "artful activism." He designs and produces creative political actions and provides trainings in grand strategy and creative tactics around the country.
