NRDC: Clean Energy and Conservation: Mapping Tool to Identify Low-Impact Sites for Renewable Energy Development.

NRDC: Clean Energy and Conservation: ""

(Via .)

Lovers of the American West will tell you that it's blessed -- and they're right. It's home to significant sources of renewable energy, such as solar, wind and geothermal power. The Western states, their residents and the nation will need these resources to repower America and meet the challenge of global warming.

But the West is also home to remarkable wildlands, diverse wildlife and irreplaceable cultural resources. That makes it vital to find the best sites for new clean energy projects and transmission lines, so that America can harness renewable power while doing the least damage to the Western environment.

Working with Google Earth, NRDC has developed this interactive resource to help environmentalists, renewable energy developers, utility companies and others meet these challenges.

Community / Station Planning Meeting Tonight (Tue 11/03/09) for LA Metro's future West Hollywood Subway at the PDC.

L.A. Metro is planning many new lines and improvements, all on the fast track with Measure R and Federal Stimulus funds.

One project is the West Side Subway Extension. One branch (The Purple Line) will extend under Wilshire from Wilshire / Western all the way out Wilshire to Third Street in Santa Monica.

The other (The Pink Line, of course!) will run from Hollywood & Highland, south to Santa Monica Blvd, west under Santa Monica Bl. to San Vicente in west Hollywood, south under San Vicente stopping at the Beverly Center before it continues south to Wilshire where it will merge with the Purple Line.

The planning meeting will be to hear input and present alternatives for the WeHo and Beverly Hills stations.

This is a great shot!
The raccoons in that city are amazingly used to people!
My good friend Paul C. would often have them scratching at the back door...
