Welcome to another edition of “Peas and Carrots” – a weekly wrap-up of news and commentaries Citizens for Sound Conservation believes are noteworthy in the effort to improve our environmental and economic quality of life.


As stated in our initial introduction of this report, in order to truly enhance our quality of life, economic growth and environmental protection must go hand in hand – just like peas and carrots.  These articles, opinions and initiatives are intended as informational pieces that make our case that responsible usage and protection of natural resources can and should compliment each other.


And remember, if you get hungry during the week please check out our website at to get a daily dose of what’s happening.
