Well I certainly had no idea about this, but apparently the City of Austin is led by an EcoGeek. Will Wynn publishes his power bill in the paper (it's frequently below $50), walks to work, and has attracted over 25 clean technology and renewable energy companies to his city.
If a guy like this can get 80% of the vote in an (admittedly green) Texas town...why aren't there any presidential candidates following suit.
In any case, if you want to learn more about Austin's green machine, check out the short interview he just did with Earth2Tech. It provides some very interesting examples of what can be done with some intelligent local planning and initiative. Very cool.
