Earth Day 40th anniversary - cleaner, healthier, less polluted Bay Area - but more work to do 22.4.2010 San Jose Mercury News: Local News
Today, 40 years after the first Earth Day, the Bay Area by most measures is a much less polluted, environmentally healthier place than it was in 1970. The air is cleaner. The water is cleaner. A green technology and renewable energy boom is under way in Silicon Valley. There are more acres of protected parkland and fewer toxic emissions from industry.

Poll: Americans say US cars top Asian autos 21.4.2010 Vail Colorado: Editorials
WASHINGTON - After a long romance with foreign rivals, America's love affair with the automobile is returning to its roots with a revived affection for U.S.-made cars. Slightly more Americans now say the United States makes better-quality vehicles than Asia does, with 38 percent saying U.S. cars are best and 33 percent preferring autos made by Asian companies, according to an Associated Press-GfK Poll. The survey suggests those numbers are largely fueled by a plunge in Toyota's reputation and an upsurge in Ford's.
