Hillsborough Cool Cities Coverage

The Raleigh News&Observer and its subsidiary publication the Chapel Hill News have really done an outstanding job of providing coverage to the Cool Cities program in North Carolina.

There have been three items about it just in the last twelve days, including this good piece about Hillsborough signing on from reporter Emily Matchar.

One thing Emily pointed out that I forgot to mention when blogging about this earlier is that:

The Town Board's endorsement of a Sierra Club program for climate protection met with audience applause Monday night.

She's right. The vast majority of the folks in the audience there were present to see other stuff on the agenda, and it was really neat to see how excited all the non-Sierra Club people there were to see their town take this step. The elected officials and town staff are on board, and it appears the citizenry at large is as well.

Thanks Hillsborough!
