It looks like Laguna Beach may be on its way to having a functioning Environmental Committee again - if some folks step up and apply to be on the panel. Last year, the City Council was taken aback when no one even put their name in the hopper for the committee, charged with helping to formulate environmentally friendly policies. In Laguna Beach, which, as they say, "bleeds green," this was a shocker. The committee was founded more than five years ago to advise the council on matters of sustainability, "green" building, environmental protection, water quality and generally keeping the city on the cutting edge of the green movement.

Solar is again becoming popular. Nothing has been as powerful as the solar panel, in terms of an iconic technology for the green movement. Ironically, it is a close relative of the solar water heater — which provides higher efficiency and a greater return on investment than the solar panel. Solar hot water systems capture energy from the sun to heat water, displacing the use of natural gas or electricity, with clean, free and limitless solar energy. The efficiency of the collectors can be as high as 85%, meaning very little solar energy is lost in the process.

While burgers and health food don't always go hand-in-hand, a recent Dartmouth graduate is taking the challenge and opening a sustainable burger joint, Urbun Natural Burger, in Laguna Beach this spring. As his classmates looked for full-time jobs, applied to graduate school or moved home, David Mainiero, who graduated this year with a degree in history, created a business plan and marketed it to investors, many of whom are former schoolmates. The space will occupy the former Kentucky Fried Chicken location at 695 S. Coast Hwy. The 23-year-old noticed the location while he was in town a few months back, thinking to himself that it would be the perfect spot.

Two Laguna Beach men, a hotel and an environmental nonprofit foundation were honored by the Laguna Beach City Council on March 24 for their contributions to the environment. The honorees — Arnold Hano, Tom Osborne, Casa Laguna Inn and Endangered Planet Gallery — were selected from a “strong” list of nominees by the Environmental Committee, said Max Isles, a committee member. Hano has arguably the longest tenure of activism, Isles said. “He has decades of service, from preventing the dynamiting of wilderness caves to stopping high-rise hotels, at a time when Laguna Beach was the only city with an anti-high-rise ordinance,” Isles said.

CATHARINE COOPER I read the news aloud to anyone who will listen, "She planted 30 million trees, and she won the Nobel Peace Prize." Wangari Mathaai and the organization she founded, the Green Belt Movement (GBM), planted 30 million trees in Kenya during the last 30 years. For this accomplishment, along with myriad others, including the advocacy of women's rights, broad based educational initiatives, development of the tool of reforestation as a vehicle to stave off tribal warfare, and an expansion of the foundation of democracy, Mathaai was awarded the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize.

'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.
