Putting my bleeding heart hat on to point out the efforts of a 13-year-old non-profit group called E+Co, which has started a Web site called EnergyCures.com.

The site focuses on projects in emerging countries that make use of alternative energy in emerging nations. Here are some of the examples. Its ultimate goal is to get individual investors to ante up money for these programs, so it offers an online facility for donating money to the companies working on these projects. (Thus the bleeding heart of this post. Their goal is to raise $50,000.)

Most of our time in this blog is spent focusing on the impact of excess on the planet. This site, however, focuses on poverty and people and provides some pretty compelling statistics about why providing access to alternative energy sources could be good for the world economy.
