A Double Load of The Tyee: Bogota's Mayor and Climate Spin Fighter
Two good articles from The Tyee, an interesting little independent newspaper from British Columbia (Canada):
- The Mayor Who Wowed the World Urban Forum: An article about Enrique Peñalosa, the mayor of Bogota, a man who can teach us a lot about turning the urban environment into a place where treehuggers - and everybody - feel home.
- You Can't Spin Mother Nature: A piece about Jim Hoggan, creator of the excellent DeSmogBlog, a blog who's goal it is to counter the spin about climate change. To better understand what he's trying to fight, we suggest that you read Jim's Manifesto.
