Conference Looks To Make Bluegrass State Greener

What can people do to make the Bluegrass State greener?

That was the subject of the Governor's Conference on the Environment, which wrapped up Tuesday in Lexington.

One session on building green communities explored questions like how best to revitalize blighted urban areas in a sustainable way. Experts have found that rarely happens without first creating a sense of urgency.

Many speakers at the conference didn't get into a lot of specifics Tuesday. Instead, they concentrated on concepts such as the importance of asking people to envision what their community could and should look like.

Kentucky's First Lady, Jane Beshear, addressed the conference over lunch, stressing the governor's commitment to help the state go green.

Other issues addressed at the conference included clean water, trash recycling, and reducing carbon dioxide emissions to offset the threat of global warming.
