Democratic Convention Goes Green
Or as green as can be. In addition to normal recycling the vehicles used will have beer based bio fuels.

Then there's transportation: General Motors will be providing a fleet of hybrid and flex-fuel vehicles, Coors is donating ethanol made with thousands of gallons of its beer waste and bus idling will be kept to a minimum.

Pollution is also being controlled through the use of wind and solar energy and efficient lighting, computers and appliances.

To top it all off, the party's "Director of Greening" hired an outside firm to calculate the convention's carbon footprint so it can be offset with carbon credits.

All and all not bad. Flying 50,000 people all over the country is not really green.
