Making the grade

If Fresno wants to emulate cities that are in the top 10 in protecting themselves against global warming, we need to start doing some of the things endorsed by the Kyoto Treaty. I was amazed at the lack of preparation we've done, compared to the cities on the list (see thegreenguide.com/doc/113/top10cities).

Getting with the program for these cities included: excellent public transportation, pedestrian-oriented shopping areas, clean air, good water, smoking ban, high percentage of renewable energy, wind power and a high percentage of bicycle commuters.

How does Fresno score on these qualifiers?
