The Greening of California
Los Angeles has less green space per resident (1/10 of an acre per 1,000 residents) than any other city in the US. Green ideas are starting to take hold in California -- partly "no one wants to become another Los Angeles." But even in Los Angeles, recent funding for the LA River and the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy is demonstrating that "green" efforts are generating mind share. Is a fear of urban sprawl causing cities to re-evaluate their environmental decisions?
