*George enthusiastically supports initiatives such as the Montgomery County "Go Green program" run by the State of Maryland's Department of Environmental Protection.
*George supports the Maryland Green Party and Montgomery County Green Party platforms.
*Both George and his wife Phyllis drive Toyota Prius cars to help protect our environment, and the Glucks use solar panels to help power and heat their home.
*Researchers believe that a sustainable globe would require 1.5 acres per capita. If Montgomery County were to follow this guideline, our 317,440 acres would sustain a population of 211,627. Our land use planning presently considers global climate change, but clearly more needs to be done to lower our carbon footprint.
*George participated in the Community Cleanup in Hallowell organized by Blake High School junior Kirsten Petersen on April 25th (George with Kirsten in photo at left).
*Project Change in Olney - Kirsten Petersen is a member of this worthy organization promoting community service for our youth.
