President-elect Obama’s phone has been ringing off the hook. Democrat leaders call to congratulate, world leaders want to talk policy and special interest groups hope that Obama will pay better attention to their cause than the Bush administration did. One group seeking Obama’s ear is the Presidential Climate Action Project (PCAP).
A new climate change exhibit opens at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City before embarking on a worldwide tour. Nothing gets left out in the cold with this comprehensive, and engaging, look at the world's biggest problem.
Did you see today's New York Times? Bill Vlasic writes that "Ford is Betting the Future on Small, Efficient Cars." Apparently, Vlasic got a head's up before Ford makes an official announcement this Thursday. Could it be true? An American Company is taking a step toward practicing what the enviros preach. How about that? Up until now, some of the most fuel-efficient compact cars hitting today's copious best-buy-for-the-planet lists have been from Asian automakers, like Toyota and Honda. Maybe soon we can buy local (American-made) and have our fuel-efficient cars too. See my previous post about car buying, and creating a U.S. green economy.
For more about green auto trends, see the related articles on the Times (you will find several at the end of Vlasic's current article), as well as many other publications. If you find something worth sharing, please post a comment on The Perch.
