Former Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle spoke to Cornell University students and faculty on Thursday in a presentation that recounted her vision for a sustainable energy future and her role in implementing the Hawaii Clean Energy Intiative.

The Cornell Daily Sun was there to cover it — nice picture, too — and you can read the paper’s report here.

Among other things, Lingle made a crack about having to be an optimist because she is, after all, a Republican in Democratic-blue Hawaii. And she went on, according to the paper, to decry the polarization in Congress and other political realms.

Lingle has been teaching a public policy seminar at California State University, Northridge.
