If we gather here our important resources, these will not be lost to those who follow. There are many topics to be covered, determined by the response of the membership. This content is to be developed by the membership, for the membership.
The environmental movement was led by some early pioneers. These books laid the foundation for the modern environmental movement. These books should help us better understand the issues of our times. It is formatted enough to be usable, but not "finished".^ top

Model Year 2004 Vehicles are Now Posted in the EPA's Green Vehicle Guide! Search for the cleanest and most efficient 2004 models at http://www.epa.gov/greenvehicles. As always, a vehicle with a higher emission score will always be cleaner than one with a lower score. Similarly, a vehicle with higher city and highway fuel economy will be more efficient and produce fewer greenhouse gases than one with lower values.
This year, EPA's new stringent “Tier 2” emission standards for cars and trucks officially take effect. Stricter standards mean cleaner choices for car buyers - the average score for 2004 models is 6, compared with a score of 4 in 2003. Vehicles rating 8 or higher meet or exceed the average Tier 2 requirements.
In the coming years, as the Tier 2 standards are fully phased in, the emissions will improve even more dramatically! For more information about EPA's Tier 2 standards, go to http://www.epa.gov/otaq/tr2home.htm.^ top
