    INTO THINNER AIR

    The ozone hole over Antarctica is the biggest it's ever
    been, 11 million square miles, or three times the size of
    the U.S., scientists at NASA said on Friday. Synthetic
    compounds in refrigerants, aerosol sprays, and
    foam-blowing agents cause depletion of the ozone
    layer. The amount of such chemicals in the atmosphere
    is leveling off, thanks to the 1987 Montreal Protocol,
    which halted the production of most of them, but the
    effects of past production are only now just being felt
    and experts say it could be another 20 years before
    ozone levels recover noticeably.

    HOT DIGGITY SMOG

    The buzz a couple of weeks ago was that Los Angeles was set to
    regain the title of smoggiest city in the U.S. from Houston -- but,
    hark, the race isn't yet over. As of yesterday, Houston had
    rebounded and surpassed L.A. with 37 days above the national
    standard for ozone pollution compared to L.A.'s 34 days. In fact,
    Houston is on a tear with nine days in a row of violations. This

    could be good news for Vice President Al Gore, who likes to call
    attention to environmental problems in Gov. George W. Bush's home
    state. Meanwhile, residents of New England are breathing easier.
    Thanks to cool weather and tighter air pollution controls, Maine,
    Massachusetts, and New Hampshire are on pace to have a record
    low number of smoggy days since readings were first kept in 1983.

    FIGHTING FOR POOR, OPPRESSED OIL CONGLOMERATES EVERYWHERE

    Texas Gov. George W. Bush announced on Friday that
    as president he would "empower" oil producers and
    welcome offshore oil and gas development off the
    coasts of Louisiana and Texas. He says more drilling is
    needed in the U.S. to decrease dependence on foreign
    oil. Al Gore, for his part, has promised to clamp down
    on offshore drilling in federal waters.

    LACTOSE TOLERANT

    Stonyfield Farm Inc., a New Hampshire-based yogurt
    company, is launching a new national print ad
    campaign that aims to promote environmental and
    social causes as well as its own cultured dairy
    products. Gary Hirschberg, president and chief
    executive of Stonyfield Farm, calls the campaign
    concept "ad-tivism," a combination of advertising and
    activism. The new ads feature well-known personalities
    like filmmaker and historian Ken Burns and highlight
    causes that matter to them, from rainforest protection to
    organic gardening. Stonyfield Farm hopes the
    do-gooder messages will attract do-gooder customers.
    The company has also tried to lure activist-minded
    buyers with messages on its yogurt lids calling for
    action on environmental and other issues, and by giving
    10 percent of profits to organizations like the Jane
    Goodall Institute, which promotes wildlife conservation
     and research.

    Dear Greenyes,

    I am in the process of purchasing beverage recycling containers for a
    outdoor beverage recycling program. Some parks are subject to heavy
    vandalism and theft. Containers need to be heavy enough that they
    cannot be removed easily from one place to the other (but can be
    moved if they need to be). And most importantly, they need to
    include recycled materials. Do any of you suggest any particular
    container types or specific vendors? Thank you for your help.

    Sincerely,

    Kae Ono
