Christ turns ‘Green’ at UN Earth Summit — Literally

Green guru James Lovelock was right. He warned last week that “the green religion is now taking over from the Christian religion.” Now at the U.N. Earth Summit, even the image of Christ has been made a forcible convert to the eco-faith, as the city of Rio is bathing the iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer (Christo Redentor) in green light.

Smart growth policies outsmart pocketbooks

What would happen if cities nationwide adopted so-called "smart growth" policies similar to those of, say, Portland, Oregon?
