The Greening of Salt Lake City

By Jenny Brundin

Salt Lake City, UT – When President Bush rejected the Kyoto Protocol in 2001, Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson popped into gear. Declaring Bush's action irresponsible, he promised that HIS city -- the capital of one of the most conservative states in the country -- would meet the goals of the global warming treaty, one compact fluorescent light bulb at a time. KUER's Jenny Brundin reports as part of Think Global, public radio's week of special coverage.
