Time Magazine's Top Ten Green Stories of 2008

As 2008 comes to an end, it is only natural to look back at the events of this past year. And what a year it's been-- with the presidential election as the headline story almost everyday. Every list has Barack Obama at the top. And the Top 10 list of Green Stories is no different.

Here's Time Magazine's List of Top 10 Green Stories of 2008.

When it comes to the daunting task of “saving the planet” it sometimes seems like nothing is ever enough. But in reviewing the events in the past year, I'm reminded of all of the great changes that happened and how far we have come in the fight against climate change.

But it is also a reminder that we have only just touched the tip of the (melting) iceberg. More and bigger changes are necessary and, I hope, on their way. We have a huge opportunity as a nation to take even greater steps forward. And if we do, the top ten list for 2009 will be even more impressive.
