Go Green Savannah – Not Just for St. Pat’s.

The current issue of The South magazine has some great articles on Green Savannah, especially the recycling one.

As a wanna-be more active environmentalist, I have noticed something about Savannah since moving here. There are no emissions standards for the cars. There are some very poorly maintained vehicles on the road that are noticably polluting the air. As Savannah’s position as a coastal city, and proximity to the river, these environmental impacts should be the governments front and center issues. I know people in general do not enjoy getting the emissions testing done on their vehicles, and it is usually mandantory in larger cities, but don’t you feel Savannah’s role as a port city, a tourist location, and situation among wetlands, that pollution and environmental controls should be a little more important?

How does everyone feel about this?
