Environment = Potential

We have a duty as citizens of the State of South Dakota and the United States of America, to protect our future through proactive approaches in natural resource conservation and clean energy initiatives. We cannot accept imbalances in development any longer. Our natural environment provides us with the appropriate resources to continue our way of life…let us look to the future, what will we have created for our children and grandchildren? Clean/renewable energy is vital to long-term sustainability, yet we must remain vigilant about overdevelopment to the detriment of our natural habitats in South Dakota…

Sustainable development is critical – our economy should not put our environment at an undue risk. We have a resource in our environment other states do not and we must continually view it as an asset on our balance sheet.
