NY Times Focuses on Westport’s Green Energy Efforts

New York Times “Our Towns” columnist Peter Applebome today highlights the efforts of the Westport Green Energy Task Force and says don’t underestimate what the town is Image

In a Metro Section front page column headlined “A Community Tries To Shrink Its Footprint,” he said local governments tend to be good at some things strictly local, but “they tend to be less good at others, like, say, saving the world.”

He continued:  ”So it’s hard to make too much of the 60 or so people who turned out on a snowy, non-global-warming Thursday night for an event held by the Westport Green Energy Task Force. But it also might be a mistake to make too little.

“Westport, with its beachfront parks and leafy neighborhoods where the populace naturally tilts green, is ahead of the game but hardly unique in trying, in its own small way, to address climate change through public and private action.”
