89.3 KPCC: "Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas spoke to LA's readiness for marketing sustainability in local issues. And LA's got a video selling that same idea, that they showed part of, that I've been looking to post, by way of explanation to VX delegates about where the city's at. I can't find the one I saw in the Marriott on line, but I did find one that's clearly related - it's got the same actors in it"

89.3 KPCC: "A conference takes place today at which power company and port authority leaders will meet with city planners, air and water regulators, and green entrepreneurs. KPCC's Molly Peterson has more on the verdeXchange."

89.3 KPCC: "Unemployment is lingering up at about 12.5 percent percent in California. In some communities of Southern California, the jobless rate is much higher.
