This is one of those moments in which I must step aside and simply offer this very cool and inspiring two-minute video. Day in and day out, I continue to be moved and amazed by the resourcefulness and resilience of this movement.

Enjoy:

Stephan Keegan, seen in the above video, works with Time's Up, an environmental education and direct action group which did an energy map of Zuccotti Park to determine its energy needs. Below is an informative video describing how his initiative of sustainable energy is being incorporated by Occupy Wall Street in Zuccotti:

This video was brought to my attention by another group promoting sustainable energy at Occupy Wall Street:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
