1. ENERGY EFFICIENCY

New York tries to help landlords, tenants pick 'low-hanging fruit'

NEW YORK -- In 2007, when Mayor Michael Bloomberg unveiled his plan to cut this city's greenhouse gas emissions by 30 percent compared to 2005 levels, most of his aides had only a vague idea of how the city might reach the goal by Bloomberg's deadline, which was 2030. But they knew that a major part of the solution would have to involve buildings. New York City has more than a million of them, including a large collection of the oldest, draftiest, most soot-spewing buildings in the United States.

2. ADVOCACY

Heartland Institute conference attendees try for a subtler skepticism, but group's leader sometimes strays off message

CHICAGO -- Climate change contrarians are trying to craft a softer, more nuanced message about global warming -- that it is real but insignificant. This follows a seismic reply to a surprise public relations stunt that shook loose many of the Heartland Institute's funders. People attending the group's conference here, eager to raise uncertainties about climate change, suggested the focus should be on subtle messages that do not refute the greenhouse gas effect, but rather downplay its impacts.
