Yesterday I learned that the ridership for the Metro Transit system--buses and light rail--was over seven million riders in August.
A couple of months ago I went to a colloquium on global warming at Hamline University sponsored by NextStep. Chris Coleman, the mayor of Saint Paul, was talking about increasing the energy efficiency of many of the city's most wasteful buildings. Now, Minneapolis is doing the same, as discussed in this story on the Minnesota Public Radio site.
