Time Names Top Ten Green Stories for 2008


Time Magazine has just named its top ten green stories for 2008. The choices range from completely unsurprising (i.e. Barack Obama, offshore drilling) to eyebrow-raising. Check it out and see if you agree with Time:

1. The election of Barack Obama
2. The passage of renewable energy credits by Congress;
3.  The offshore drilling debate
4. The failure of the Warner-Lieberman national carbon cap-and-trade legislation
5. New rules that put a freeze on development of new coal plants
6. The ethanol bubble bursts
7. Polar bears listed as "threatened" under the Endangered Species Act
8. Indonesia warms to avoiding deforestation
9. The first C02 auction
10. Word of the year: "hypermiling," which means squeezing every last mile out your gas tank by making adjustments to the car and to driving habits and techniques.
