Introducing Matt Rumsey

I have been remiss for not earlier bothering to mention that we have an outstanding Cool Cities intern, as much as it pains my Carolina soul to say, from Duke University this summer.

Matt Rumsey
is a rising senior at Duke from Dunwoody, Georgia. He is the starting center on Duke's football team. I have found him to be smart, personable, and self motivated- the best qualities you could ask for in an intern.

Something folks have asked for repeatedly in my Cool Cities work is a guide to what other communities in North Carolina are doing on global warming, either as part of the Cool Cities program or independently of it. Matt is bringing that goal to fruition.

There is a good guide now available nationally, which you can check out here. But we think it's important to have one specific to our state as well.

Matt has been in touch with about 20 cities across the state so far and is pulling together some great information. We hope to make some of that raw information available to groups in the next few weeks, with an attractive 'published' version for wider distribution ready later in the summer.

Welcome Matt!
