Good to know, thank you for the update. I didn't realize Reagan really had it out for our environment.

Is Mass St. China's "air" apparent?

Good call Merrill. I think that if there were a few more bike lanes around town, Lawrence would be a great place to ride to work and around town. It could be easy to do if street parking was eliminated on major roads.

My Own Private Power Company

Buck,I think you are correct that many local and state governments have laws either prohibiting or clearly defining what may be used, how it is used and where it can be used. I haven't seen anything regarding these turbines in particular as they are not quite ready to market them in the US. Local laws may be a reason why.

Democratic National Beer Waste Convention

Phoenx32,I hear what you are saying but I would question whether these types of actions on the part of Coors or Ethos are intended as "quick fixes" or to help get more people involved in making the world a better place. Some people will have to be pulled kicking and screaming, so why not make it easier for them to help out? The activists will always do the grunt work, but isn't it better to do something, even a little, rather than nothing?

Democratic National Beer Waste Convention

I hear what you are saying. I do agree that the companies are ultimately interested in their bottom line. But I don't think Walmart is trying to attract the "green freak," rather they are making "green" buying decisions mainstream. Their buying power and ability to influence the market can and will help make buying "green" less expensive for everyone and ideally can minimize or even eliminate less "green" choices.
