chicago is greening itself

Last week, Mayor Richard M. Daley of Chicago announced a dramatic plan to drastically cut greenhouse gas emissions, in an effort to stop global warming and become one of the greenest cities in the nation.

As the Associated Press reported: "The plan calls for reducing greenhouse gas emissions to three-fourths of 1990 levels by 2020 through more energy-efficient buildings, using clean and renewable energy sources improving transportation and reducing industrial pollution."

"We can't solve the world's climate change problem in Chicago, but we can do our part," said Mayor Daley. "We have a shared responsibility to protect our planet."
