I rarely hear a single word in Georgia about water conservation. Even in dry summers. Implementing a water conservation campaign should be a prerequisite to any consideration of more water coming to Atlanta.
I agree with SanityKnocking. I have lived in GA for 8 years now and have never heard word one about water conservation. I have lived other places where they have water issues and fight over access (Texas, Arizona) but at least in those they implement conservation measures and talk about saving water (to a point, they aren't perfect). This attitude of Georgia politicians that "it's all ours and we ain't doin' nothing to change." is abhorrent.
Same old same old in Georgia. We can look forward to more of this when our new criminal - oops, I mean governor- is sworn in.
Cinque is such an atl treasure. great to see an honest finger on the pulse of atlanta's art scene.
Curious this hipster/big business alliance manufactured by Papst Blue Ribbon. There are at least two "mural" in east atl that are actually just PBR advertisements - I wonder who got paid to let PBR paint their buildings... It is corporate america exploiting the alternative masses - it is TERRIBLE beer that, through great underground marketing, has become hip to drink. Too bad the youth aren't interested in supporting local craft brews.
Upon my first trip to the Georgia Aquarium I was shocked to see that there was nary a mention of conservation, habitat destruction, endangered species, etc. among the exhibits (they have since included sparse mention of these important topics in a FEW places). This observation led me to look up the aquarium's mission statement. I was shocked that the first thing it mentioned was "entertainment." That did a lot to explain the theme-park style of the aquarium - and to explain the continued exhibiting of whale sharks in spite of a lack of information regarding their habitat needs (not to mention their new diving program). The Georgia Aquarium is indeed entertaining, but I reserve my RESPECT for institutions like the Monterey Bay Aquarium, whose mission is to "inspire conservation of the oceans."
