This Week in Atlanta

The big event this week is the Green Business Works Expo on Wednesday & Thursday.  I'm also looking forward to seeing what the Atlanta Mayoral Candidates have to say in their Green Transportation Conversation on Monday and at the Sustainable Atlanta Roundtable on Friday.  An interesting but unfortunate piece of environmental history occurred this week as well in 1914.  Martha, the last known passenger pigeon died in captivity in the Cincinnati Zoo.  The story of the passenger pigeon is one of mammoth exploitation and is tragic.  It is interesting to see just how quickly and forcefully, man can impose his will on nature.
