On June 2, I attended a meeting of Laguna Beach Climate Protection Work Group. The purpose of the group is to reduce the damaging emissions generated by Laguna, it's residents, businesses, transport and so on. The group is made up of members of the public who are guided by the Laguna Beach Environmental Committee. The meeting was very interesting, not only due to the information presented but also due to the number of attendants. These meeting are public meetings and will ultimately lead to positive changes that will affect all Laguna Beach residents, and yet less than a dozen members of the public attended.

Godless more dangerous Self-professed atheist Niko Theris claimed that his atheism has served him and others with whom he "relates very well for many trips around the sun." ("Informed by visits to local churches," Mailbag, Dec. 29) Mr. Theris finds the different versions of the Holy Bible inconsistent with immutability and inerrancy, and even notes that churches differ in size, architecture, formality, attendance, music and other variables. I wonder if all houses of atheism are identical in size, architecture, formality, attendance, music, etc. I also wonder where the atheist hospitals and soup kitchens are. One can find countless Lutheran, Catholic and other hospitals built and run by Christians, but strangely enough, not one by atheists who consider themselves so very moral and intellectual.

When you read that, starting Jan. 1, the 100-watt bulb is fading away due to its inefficiencies, you may think, "there they go again, now Congress wants to dictate which light bulb I can use.

How to provide choices and flexibility to mobility needs is a question many have for a long time. A sign of our times is that peak-oil and economic uncertainty has plunged the automobile industry into a state of flux, and that soon the internal combustion engine will be obsolete, the question is: What's next?

'Green' definition needs clarity For too long now you have been misleading some of your readers who can't see through the fallacy that solar panels alone make you "green. " No sincere, educated person would classify someone powering their inefficient, super-sized home with 170 panels as "green. " On the contrary. Green is much deeper and holistic than that. By suggesting that solar panels alone make you green is incredibly naive and borders on greenwashing. Please give us a little more depth and practice responsible journalism by giving us a more accurate headline (e.g.
