An interview with Salt Lake City mayor and green innovator Rocky Anderson
In a decidedly red state, Rocky Anderson is a decidedly green mayor — and a popular one at that. His innovations have turned Salt Lake City into a sustainable hub with thriving public transportation, businesses clamoring for energy efficiency, and one of the few governments that can claim they’re exceeding their goals to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions. Kate Sheppard reports on a press tour with hizzoner, and David Roberts picks Anderson’s mind about how he’s managed to bring the city so far — and why he plans to leave it all behind.
