All talk, no action

Dear Editor:I recently read that the city had hired a global warming specialist whose job description was “to make people aware of the effects of global warming.”While I applaud the motive behind this decision I feel that money ($100,000 per year, if you include benefits) would be more effectively spent ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING.For example: purchasing hybrid cars for city use, giving a bonus to city employees who car pool, subscribing to the electric utility’s wind power supplement, installing solar panels on certain city buildings or employee housing, giving “green credits” to developers. The choices are endless.Jay BrownAspen
