Olympic Torch Reaches San Francisco

The Olympic torch will make its only North American stop in the city of San Francisco on Wednesday. This torch relay will follow a six mile route, beginning at 1 p.m. at McCovey Cove at AT&T Park, following the Embarcadero, past Fisherman's Wharf, and ending at Justin Herman Plaza. Tibetans and their supporters will be holding a rally on Tuesday at the United Nations Plaza, at Market Street and Hyde Street near the Civic Center BART, to protest the Olympic torch relay and China's recent crackdown on protesting Tibetans in Lhasa.

Nobel Laureate Desmond Tutu and Actor Richard Gere will be as guest speakers at the rally, which begins at 6 p.m. Police in San Francisco said they are taking special actions to protect the torch, which had to be extinguished thrice in Paris because of protests, before organizers in the French capital decided to cut short the route.

San Francisco Will Soon Show Off the Greenest Buildings

The City of San Francisco will soon boast the greenest buildings in USA. Last week, the local government took a critical step towards agreeing what are probably the toughest environmental construction standards in the country. Companies and families planning to build homes and offices might be required to earn green points by introducing water and energy saving measures or they will risk losing their construction permits.

Now construction is not a sexy area of climate policy, but it is one in which huge gains can be made for relatively at little cost. For example, existing technologies such as solar water heating can cut greenhouse emissions from a building by one-third. Yet authorities regulating the housing booms in places like the American south-west and many cities across China have done very little to promote such measures.
