Review of The Greening of Salt Lake City

Interesting look at a liberal mayor in a conservative city and state (Salt Lake City, UT) and his promise to meet Kyoto Protocol standards, even if the federal government will not. This is a solid piece that fits in with many environmental themes, and perhaps several political themes.

While coastal cities can see the impact of global warming and rising sea levels, Salt Lake can see losing it's snow. The ski industry is huge there, and that's helping the mayor sell his agenda.

Listen, invest in some fluorescent lightbulbs and marvel at the strange bedfellows in Utah.
