I was feeling pretty good about myself when my wife and I went out and bought a hybrid Toyota a couple of weeks ago. Then I read this in the paper the other day and thought, "Hey, this is a new twist." Seems as if a different state beat California to the "green" punch, as it were. I wonder if this means that we can get ready for a hybrid model from either Jeep or Chrysler. (So far these are the only models we are aware of.)
In other encouraging sustainability news, Florida Governor Charlie Crist recently convened a two-day Summit on Global Climate Change in Miami.
Recognizing that tourism is critical to Florida’s economy, the leadership in the capitol can no longer wait for the federal government to take the lead on this issue that affects us all.
Businesses and governments are realizing that it pays to be green, but as consumers, we need to make sure there are clear and enforceable definitions of what that means. Sort of like using the word "natural," which can mean just about anything. Sometimes doing the right thing requires a bit of legwork on the part of the do-gooder.
