The Buzz

"The most important thing to happen this past year was that living and thinking 'green'--that is, mobilizing for the environmental/energy challenge we now face--hit Main Street. For so many years the term 'green' . . . was trapped in a corner by its opponents, who defined it as 'liberal,' 'tree-hugging,' 'girly-man,' 'unpatriotic,' 'vaguely French.' No more."

--columnist Thomas L. Friedman, New York Times, December 22, 2006

"The public is placing locally grown foods on the same pedestal organics once occupied, seeing them as a path to better health and environmental quality."

--Seattle Post-Intelligencer, December 27, 2006
