Green New York?

This morning's Ithaca Journal reports a quiet weekend for Dryden. (Actually, it doesn't report anything on Dryden at all, which I hope means a quiet weekend.) It does, however, include a piece by Jay Gallagher on New York State and global warming, looking at the recent floods and energy use.

In the print edition, Professor Elia Kacapyr reports that his Index of Economic Activity in Tompkins County rose by .84% in May, a weak gain but an improvement on losses in the last two months. May is slightly below the December 2005 position, so it's good to see an upswing. Most of that up seems to be in building construction and home sales, with a tiny increase in retail sales.
