If George W. Bush is reelected as president of the United States on Nov. 2, he will have another four years to continue to undo the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Water Act and the Clean Air Act. When first elected, Mr. Bush promised to ban carbon dioxide, a noxious gas which is spewed into the atmosphere when fossil fuels are burned. But he backed away from that ban, a move that was documented in a recent PBS report on "NOW with Bill Moyers."

With this state leading the way in the fight against global warming, as the governor later pointed out, it was somehow fitting that a vehicle with a distinctly California name — the Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid — was named the 2008 Green Car of the Year last week by Green Car Journal. The announcement was made Nov. 15 during media days leading up to the Los Angeles Auto Show, which opened to the public the following morning and runs through Sunday at the Convention Center in downtown L.A. Other vehicles considered for the honor were the Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid, Mazda Tribute Hybrid, Nissan Altima Hybrid and the Saturn Aura Hybrid.

For the past 84 years, Tom Sawyer Camps, originally located in Laguna Beach, has been inviting kids to "unplug," immerse themselves in nature and spend their summer outside the vast reach of technology.
