Longtime Club Activist Promotes Hawaii's "Moon Shot"


Former Hawaii Sierra Club organizer and longtime environmental mover-and-shaker Jeffrey Mikulina, above, made a prominent appearance on the New York Times' December 2 editorial page with his call to wean Hawaii from fossil fuels in 10 years. Currently Executive Director of the Honolulu-based Blue Planet Foundation, Mikulina jokes that the Aloha State is "one supertanker away from being Amish." But he is dead serious in his belief that "ending our fossil fuel addiction is the absolute priority for our state and the globe."

In January, the state approved a plan to reduce its reliance on foreign oil by 70 percent by 2030. Blue Planet, founded by software entrepreneur Henk Rogers in 2007 after a heart attack prompted him to reassess his life and career goals, favors much speedier action. Read the Times' editorial to learn how Blue Planet is promoting the state's transformation from blue to green.
