Sustainability at the Airports

I had the opportunity this summer to write on how American airports are embracing sustainability.  I found a pretty great story:  a really smart, passionate and committed corps of professionals are creating a very brave new world indeed at our airports.  See the story, The Only Way to Fly, from "Planning," the magazine of the American Planning Association.

(See also my post on Green Flying from July.)
