Saw a passing reference in a piece on travel trends about a new certification scheme for green hotels. Supposed to be developed in the next 90 days, says Joe McInerney, president of the American Hotel & Lodging Association. AHLA's site, meanwhile, has a list of hot green hotel progress, ranging from Motel 6 using sensors to turn off heat and AC in unoccupied rooms to the MGM Mirage in Las Vegas pursuing LEED certification in part by building a monorail to the Bellagio. Oh, if only Joey Bishop had lived to see it.
