While much of Climate Week NY°C focused on making sure all the leaders attending the UN Summit on Climate Change heard the growing grassroots movement demanding stronger action to preserve the climate, over at Brooklyn's Borough Hall, the Council on the Environment of New York City put on the Green Brooklyn, Green City fair and symposium. Bringing green action down to the personal lifestyle level, there were demonstrations on composting, green roofs, renewable energy, local activities in city parks, a sculpture made of 3,615 pounds of recycled clothing, and more.
