2012 -- it goes in the green bin

Comments (15)

I'm loving watching the Adams countdown clock today. Been glaring at it for years! Here's one last gag inducing ditty and video to remember him by:
Happy New Year!!!!

I like that Stenchy is saving environment by reusing an old New Uear's decoration!

Reduce - reuse - recycle!

Creepy has modified his facebook page; editing out the Mayor portion....Thank God this is finally over.

Looks like a fun party!
We stayed in tonight...too much snow and ice where we live to come home easily. The dog is happy we are home!

See ya' Admiral...Hasta la vista, Creepy.

For what it's worth; in our Gannett owned local newspaper a couple weeks ago, there was a news article about "green" buildings built around the country over the past few years. I think the article was a re-print of a USA Today news story. Basically, the story was about how few of these eco/green buildings meet either their cost savings or low utility cost goals. And that most of the public agencies that are supposed to track these mostly non-existant "savings" have done little or nothing to report these failings to their public.
Perhaps in the future some folks need to put these green/sustainability folks in the public spotlight when the planned "savings" fail to materialize.

Dave A, I wish the public spotlight would be placed on the 4 windmills on top of the Twelve West Gerding-Edlen building in downtown Portland. It would be a simple and dramatic demonstration of how payback for public tax dollars is a long time coming.

The windmills are only a small part of all the tax dollars employed devices employed in this building. We need accounting. We don't need "guesstimate" dollars assigned to "it's a demonstration" value, so that's worth...?

Sorta' like 1984 - the great erasure begins.

Stenchy looks a bit hung over - must have caught some bad fish in the big green roll cart.

That was a quick takedown! Or was it all just a bad dream?

I was on a city website keyed to "Mayor"....

I expect Char-LIE wasn't amused.

Besides "Gangnam Style" & "Fiscal Cliff", can we ban the use of the words, "Sustainable" and "Office of Equity" now?

ltjd - Better yet, can we stop spending COP money on them?
